School Dance is the twelfth episode in Season 1 and the twelfth overall episode in the Nickelodeon TV series Zoey 101. Going by streaming and/or production order, this is the 11th episode of Season 1. The episode aired on April 17, 2005.


The school dance committee this year is using a personality quiz to partner people up with the same interests. Two people from the committee come to Zoey's class to talk about it and how it benefits them. So that he can get to dance with Zoey, Chase tricks her into giving him her answers to the quiz. However, his plan backfires when another guy called Glen also gets matched up with Zoey. They both need to agree about who will dance with Zoey or neither of them will.

Episode Trivia

  • Erin Sanders (Quinn Pensky) and Paul Butcher (Dustin Brooks) do not appear in this episode.
    • Even though Dustin doesn't appear in the episode, if you look in the background of a few of the scenes at the dance, one of the kids at the dance looks like him, but his face isn't shown.
    • This is the second episode in which this has happened, the first being Backpack.
  • This episode features co-stars Teo Olivares and Christian Serratos from Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide, another live-action comedy series on TeenNick.
  • The cast has made it pretty clear that PCA is 90% guys and 10% girls. If this is true, then most of the guys wouldn't even get paired up with girls. The number of guys who would get to go to the dance is the same as the number of girls that are in the school.
    • Which is why Michael ended up being paired with Ollie.
  • Right before they show the girls getting ready for the dance they show the outside of the room. It's not the room because one room has red walls and the other has gold.
  • Originally, Logan and Dana were to be paired as a couple when Zoey 101 was in production. This is why they unexpectedly get paired in the School Dance. However, the plan to pair them was abandoned when Kristin Herrera left the show.
  • The song Michael and Ollie were dancing to was the same song that played in "Drake and Josh Go Hollywood" when Megan was jumping on the hotel bed.
  • In this episode we learn that Nicole's last name is Bristow, although it is not verbally stated until People Auction.
  • Going by streaming order, this is the 11th episode of Season 1.

  • One of the dancing guys names on the list is Harry Matheu, the production designer for this show.
  • One of the songs at the dance later appeared on Spencer's Pearpad on the iCarly episode "iWanna Stay With Spencer."

  • It is unknown how Glen was able to "steal" Zoey's personality test and "put it back" if it was online. However, Zoey may have printed it out.
