Shadow Showdown sneaks up on Club X

Scheduled on the day after the Homecoming football game, Diamond Bar High School’s Homecoming dance has been heavily anticipated by students because of its intriguing theme—ninjas.

Officially named Shadow Showdown, this year’s dance will be held at Club X, also known as Ten Nightclub, on Sept. 22 at 4647 MacArthur Blvd., Newport Beach.

Even as an asian bistro, Ten Nightclub is a modern venue that often hosts a variety of special events and doubles as a very popular club.

This event was mainly planned by United Student Body Commissioners of Special Projects, seniors Catherine Palanca and Danielle Foley, who visited the club and immediately decided to use the oriental restaurant as the site for the dance.

“Club X restaurant is a Japanese restaurant and club; the venue itself already has a beautiful Japanese décor, so we decided to stick with it,” Palanca said.

The interior of Club X is furnished with a centerpiece Buddha statue, colorful LED lights, and Japanese artwork. The dance floor sits in the center of the building and is adorned in blue, pink, and purple lights. The decorations and furniture pieces incorporate an oriental theme.

The event will include a photo booth and sushi for attendees. The addition of a scroll artist, a tea tasting station, and an origami-making station are also activities planned for at the dance.

Single tickets are $45 with an activity card and $50 without. Couple tickets are $90 with two activity cards, $95 with one, and $100 without any.

Tickets will be sold in the USB room until Tuesday, so students who have not bought their tickets yet still have time.

In anticipation for the event, junior Raven Lin said, “I’m really looking forward to this year’s homecoming dance, especially because of its interesting theme. The location looks absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to see how it turns out!”

With the perfect venue and an exciting theme, Shadow Showdown is shaping up to be a dance that students won’t want to miss.
