Gallery: Manual’s Harlem Shake

Samantha Klein

On Friday, February 22nd, Ty Martin, (11) and a few others made plans to do the newly famous dance, “The Harlem Shake.” It was originally planned to take place in the Freshmen cafeteria during second lunch, but after Martin talked to Gregory Kuhn, a school administrator, they agreed that the new time and place would be 1:30 in the Senior cafeteria. About 50 students showed up and helped to create Manual’s Harlem Shake. Even Mrs. Lisa was in on the creation.
