Josephine Hill, Sophomore, Mass Communications Major:

How would you decorate your mask for the ball? Burgundy with black lace and gold chain embellishments.

What dance move must your partner be able to do at the ball? No particular dance move. My partner should just know how to work his body. Be able to groove with the music and dance with me without having to be on me.

What would be your dance floor anthem? Oooo so many options. “The Anthem” by Pitbull or “I’m the Ish (Remix)” by DJ Class, Lil Jon and Kanye gets me hype. “Where have you been” by Rihanna is a great song for me to get into character with. “Electric Lady” by Janelle Monae is my theme song for life.
