Aries (March 21 – April 19): The Asking Out

Bold Aries jumps at the opportunity to take chances and push themselves just out of their comfort zones, and asking someone to the school dance does just that. Whether you're in the position to ask someone out or are hoping to be asked, the thought of it totally thrills you. You're a bit of an adrenaline junkie, and you never avoid something just because it makes you nervous. You're willing to put yourself out there, and you'll have fun whether or not you wind up going with the person you like.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): The Fancy Location

Taurus is a lover of fine things, and they're most likely to attend a dance when it's taking place somewhere fancy and sophisticated. With the right location and the perfect theme in place, you can rise to become one of the best-dressed people at the dance. You won't miss out on taking tons of photos showing just how glamorous you can be. If the setting is right, the dance has the opportunity to be your favorite night of the entire school year.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): The Pre-Dance Party

As much fun as Gemini will have at the dance, they're going to have even more fun getting together with all of their friends beforehand to get ready. From getting ready together to posing for portraits to eating a huge dinner, you get a lot more out of time spent directly with friends than you do simply attending an event together. You may enjoy the dance, but it's the memories you make before the dance that will actually last.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): The Chance for Romance

Sensitive Cancer sees every school dance as a chance to finally get closer to their crush. You've dreamed about getting asked to the dance by the person you like again and again, imagining how it would feel for those dreams to come true. But even when things don't work out the way you wanted, you still cherish those feelings. You never know if next time might finally make things real.

Leo (July 23 – Aug. 22): Court Candidacy

If a school dance is going to have a king and queen, there's no doubt that Leo will run for them. Chances are, you started campaigning as soon as the school year began, and that your chances of becoming queen are actually quite good. You're charismatic and people throughout the school recognize you as a big personality. Whether you win or lose, it'll be the highlight of the dance for you.

Virgo (Aug. 23 – Sep. 22): The Dresses

Analytical Virgo is extremely detail-oriented and puts time and care into everything they do. When it comes to the school dance, that means agonizing over every element of your ensemble. It might take you ages, but you'll eventually find a dress that's absolutely perfect for the event. While you might usually like to stay in the shadows, you're sure to turn heads on the big night. It'll help that every accessory will perfectly complement the outfit as well.

Libra (Sep. 23 – Oct. 22): The Memories Made

At the school dance, Libra will aim to make every single second count. You know it's not going to last forever, and after a few hours of the dance, all you'll have left are photos and memories of the big night. You won't pass on the chance to mingle with as many people as possible and dance along with every song because you want to keep that moment with you forever.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 – Nov. 21): Pretending to Hate the Dance

Scorpios tend to act too cool for school, and while they pretend to be above school dances, many of them secretly love them. Whatever cynical attitude you hold toward the dance, you'd actually like to be asked and will really enjoy your time there. No matter how good of an actor you are, your friends will probably see through the ruse by the end of the night. Your enjoyment will be impossible to hide.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21): The Constant Photo Opps

Above all else, Sagittarius loves to have a good time, and they dislike letting good opportunities slip from their fingers. As the dance progresses, you'll likely see amazing photo opportunities pop up again and again, until you've pretty much documented the entire thing. You make fun wherever you go, so you think every moment is worth capturing.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19): The Chance to Let Loose

Capricorns are the hardest workers of the zodiac and rarely give themselves the chance to take a break. That's why school dances are actually the perfect opportunity for you to let loose. Since they're technically a school function, they appeal to your desire to participate in as many academic events as you can, but allow you to not do something too mentally stimulating for once in your life. Enjoy it, because the next day you'll probably want to immediately get back to the old grind.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 – Feb. 18): The Dancing

Aquarius is a free-thinker who marches to the beat of their own drum. When loud music plays, you find it hard not to dance along to that rhythm as well. Most of the time, your dance moves tend to be completely improvised and are almost a natural reflex in response to the music. Even if your flailing doesn't resemble any established dance moves, you love every second of it. You're unique and don't worry too much about the stares.

Pisces (Feb. 19 – March 20): The Music

Creativity flows through Pisces' veins, and that includes music. You adore all kinds of songs, from current radio hits to retro throwbacks, and though you have your own individual tastes, you typically love a good dance playlist if the DJ is any good. You don't always get to soak up the sounds in big arenas like a school dance, and chances are that you'll spend most of the night vibing away to some great beats.
