10 Questions: Glee Club THON

I was lucky enough to be able to ask a few questions to John Livingston, a dancer of Glee Club THON, which is exactly like the TV show. Just kidding, guys, don’t hurt me.

OS: How are you involved in THON?

John: Through the Penn State Glee Club, and I decided to do THON after.

OS: What has your team done?

John: We’ve gone canning all four weekends, and we also hosted Penny Wars at high schools in the Hollidaysburg area.

OS: How many years have you been involved in THON?

John: First.

OS: What is your favorite part of THON?

John: The exorbitant amount of energy present in this room. And the colors. The vibrant colors. And you can tell it’s early in THON because I’m using words like “exorbitant.”

OS: What motivated you to be a dancer?

John: My brother danced at THON four years ago and I though it was the coolest thing ever. I thought THON was the coolest thing ever. That’s one of the reasons why I came to Penn State.

OS: What song do you hope they play this weekend?

John: “You Belong With Me” by T-Swift. Over and over again.

OS: How would you rate your dance skills?

John: On a scale of 1 to 10? Probably 12 ½. How would other people rate them? Probably a solid 4.

OS: What’s the coolest thing you’ve seen so far this weekend?

John: Graham Spanier walked about four feet in front of me.

OS: If you were a dinosaur, what kind would you be?

John: Velociraptor, no question. That was the easiest question you asked.
