Each year, the Long Hill Township Recreation Advisory Committee holds two dances:  one at the end of the school year in June, and one at the beginning of the school year in September.

The June Dance is for Long Hill Students in Grades 5, 6, 7.

The September Dance is for Long Hill Students in Grades 6, 7, 8.

All Dances are held at Stirling Lake on the Beach.  They are held between the hours of 7:30pm - 9:30pm.  There is a DJ to keep the crowd engaged, and light refreshments are served.  Absolutely no one is permitted to attend without a signed permission slip.  It's a fun social night for the kids. 

There is absolutely no swimming allowed.  Improper behavior will not be tolerated, and parents may be asked to pick up their child early in the event he/she misbehaves. Students may also be prevented from attending future dances at the discretion of the Recreation Advisory Committee.

There is a fee of $5 per student to attend.

Parent Chaperones are always needed and much appreciated!  If you can volunteer your time, please let the Recreation Dept. know.  908-647-8000 x219 or by e:mail at

In case a dance needs to canceled due to Inclement Weather, please check the website and/or LHTV for announcements.
