The Best THON ‘High Table’ Dancer Doodles
Through the 46 hours, dancers endure endless mental and physical stimulation. Through all the entertainment, dancing, and cheering, sometimes it’s nice to just relax and draw.
The “high tables” on the floor of the BJC are exactly what they sound like. Elevated tables for THON dancers to rest against — and of course, draw on. Many of the drawings on these tables date back to the early 2000s, giving them a graffiti-like appearance.
Though every dancer is an artist deep down inside, here’s a look at some of the most unique drawings.
“The Thon Cat”
Someone was feeling a little feisty and decided to draw this sassy cat. This feline is even sporting the Four Diamonds on his belly.
“An Aardvark Just Eating Ants And Stuff”
This aardvark seems to be eating ants, and stuff.
“A Tree By Colby”
We’re not entirely sure if the true artist behind this was “Colby,” but the name’s close proximity to this lovely, detailed elm tree tells us YES.
We have a lot of questions for this one. However, we appreciate its eccentricity.
“A Man Running For His Pants”
THON dancers store extra outfits for the weekend in dancer storage. Perhaps this piece of art symbolizes one’s fear of losing their next pair of pants?
“Skydiving Into A Pool Of Sharks”
THON can be an overwhelming experience. Some may even compare the floor to a shark tank.
As writers, we have no idea what this means.
Is this math? It must be. Mitch Hastings found his peace and serenity through some calculus.
Just like this beloved Nickelodeon fairy, THON is magical.
“Fran Is Tired”
We’re going out on a hunch, but we have a feeling that Fran is tired.
“Why, Hello There”
Hey! How are you? Keep up the amazing work.
There you have it. Just some of the best THON doodles. Got a favorite doodle that we missed? Let us know in the comments, or tweet us a photo at @THONwardState.
