Avon High School Rocks the House

How about a little change of pace when it comes to a story about a school? Usually, it’s a lot of doom and gloom with school stories these days…school standards, budget cuts, failing schools, etc.

But, Avon High School just did something pretty cool when it got what appears to be the entire student body, teachers and administrators involved in an adorable pop music mash-up featuring a pretty diverse mix of the school in Hendricks County.

The Avon High School 2014 Lip Dub featured band and drama kids, sports teams from lacrosse to cheerleading and everything in between, to color guard and many others.

I’ll be the first to admit that I had to Google “lip dub.” Alas, I’m not a teenager any more. (No, wait. Thankfully, I’m not a teenager anymore.) Anyway, Wikipedia says it’s a “type of video that combines lip synching and audio dubbing to make a music video.” The other significant part of a lib dub is that these are often done in a single, unedited shot that usually travels through a number of rooms. Color me impressed.

What a fun way to boost school morale. Everyone in the video is happily participating. Sure, there’s probably a few broody kids in the back – this is high school, after all. But there were smiles, dancing and cheers all around. Kudos to Avon High School for giving us all a remembrance of what it’s like to be young and young at heart today!

Now, excuse me while I go plan an intricately choreographed lip dub featuring my daughter’s stuffed animals.
