Cadets and their dates dance amid streamers at formal dance at the Air Force Academy. Caption on back reads “During their first year, social activity of cadets of the United States Air Force Academy is severely limited. Their first formal dance held at Christmastime in Arnold Hall, the Cadet Social Center, is an event long remembered. Upperclassmen enjoy greater social privileges, including formal dances monthly.” Photo stamped on back “Released by Office of Information Services United States Air Force Academy Denver 8, Colorado.
