THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomas County Central High school hosted a "special" dance Friday morning.

Special needs students from the county and city school systems turned the high school's gym into a dance floor.

Kids from kindergarten through 12th grade showed off their moves. Food, free pictures, colorful decorations, and a DJ made the dance extra special.

"We've never done anything like this before and so the kids were dancing before they even came in the door they were dancing down the stairs and some kids that are not really as responsive at school are out there going down dance lines and doing the worm on the floor so they've had a blast," said Assistant Principal Trista Jones.

The dance was so successful they want to make this an annual event. "Sockhop" was the dance's theme picked out by the students. Many of them dressed the part.  Feedback
