1. No one danced for at least the first 30 minutes 2 / 17 Because. Awkward.
2. …Until Saturday Night came on 3 / 17 After which you’d revert immediately to the trusty sidestep dance. Thanks Whigfield!
3. You’d play it totally cas with your makeup 4 / 17 Just some eyeshadow, lip gloss, glitter, nail stickers, body gems and hair mascara. Not in the slightest bit OTT for double maths earlier in the day.
4. Your dad would insist on taking THAT photo in front of the rockery 5 / 17 … for the end of sixth form disco. A real keeper. Just like Derek.
5. You’d binge at the tuck shop in the days before binge drinking 6 / 17 Who knew Wham bars would turn us into SUCH good dancers?!
6. You’d”smash” the B*witched dance routine 7 / 17 If only TikTok existed back then. You’d have gone viral, baby.
7. The heady mix of Impulse and Lynx Africa would fill the air 8 / 17 But BO would ultimately win out. Yep the hall totally smellt like teen spirit.
8. You rocked your new sequin top from C&A 9 / 17 … and thought you were the bomb.
PS. You were!
9. All the girls would be hoping to dance with [insert name of local heartthrob] 10 / 17 He of lush curly locks and emerging chin fluff.
10. But there was a lot of sitting on the sidelines 11 / 17 Especially in the slow dances.
11. Apart from that one unnaturally grown-up couple who took centre stage for My Heart Will Go On 12 / 17 We can only assume they’re on Strictly now!
12. There would be a snog or two 13 / 17 Possibly pre-arranged by an intermediary. Definitely disappointing. And totally weird if one or both wore braces.
13. If your mood ring said you were in love, it was FACT 14 / 17 The first rule of the mood ring is you never question the mood ring.
14. Someone’s 23-year-old boyfriend would turn up 15 / 17 … and try to gatecrash. In retrospect: weird.
15. There would be tears 16 / 17 Always the same culprit who would go on to cry on nights out well into your 30s.
16. Your Dad would pick you up at the end 17 / 17 … And GET. OUT. OF. THE. CAR. Major cringe.
