8 ways to ask your crush to the school dance

School dances are *so* fun. What's not to love about dressing up, getting ready with your friends and their dates and dancing the night away? If you have a school dance coming up and have the perfect person to bring along—but don't have the perfect idea of how to ask—we are here to help. Read on to find eight ideas to ask your crush to the school dance. 

1. Make them a poster


A poster is a classic example of how to ask someone to a dance. Whether you just get straight to the point or come up with the perfect play on words, you can't go wrong. Add some color, stickers and maybe some fancy letters for the cutest poster. 

2. Write them a card

If you don't want to make a poster, then a card is your next best option. You can keep it simple or add some personalization to it. It can be as easy as having them check a yes or no. Good luck!

3. Don't be afraid to ask them in person

Hear us out. We know asking your crush to a dance sounds like the last thing you want to do, but it's easy and shows them you really care about getting to spend time with them. You're gonna do great.

4. Show off your art skills 

If you're an amazing artist and want to show off your skills, then this is the way to ask. There are no limits when it comes to this one—you might just want to plan ahead. Whether you can paint, draw or even make a friendship bracelet, giving them something they can have forever is totally a memorable ask. 

5. Give them their fave Starbucks drink 


You can't go wrong with Starbucks. You could even write the question on the cup! If you aren't sure what they would want to drink, a bakery item works just the same. Did someone say cake pop?

6. Make a box of their fave foods

This one could be tricky if you aren't already close to your crush. If you aren't, no worries—you can either go with basic snacks like chips and candy gummies or ask their friends what your crush is always in the mood to eat. Once you have everything, put it in a basket, box or bag. This is also a great thing to add if you're asking in person or with a card!

7. Make them a playlist

A playlist is *such* a cute way to ask your crush to a dance. Especially because it costs nothing and is something they can always have to remind themselves of you. You could even ask them in the playlist name or description!

8. Ask them with a delicious treat


This is a perfect idea if you know your crush loves something sweet. You could get shaped donuts to spell out "DANCE?" or write it on a giant cookie in frosting. Even just a box of cookies or cupcakes works ah-mazing too.
