The Sadie Hawkins Dance was a dance held annually at Starfleet Academy. It was an Academy tradition.

Both Data and Wesley Crusher considered this event quite embarrassing for them, as both were unable to dance in their Academy days (though Data later learned to do so). (TNG: "The Game", "Data's Day")

According to the Star Trek Encyclopedia (3rd ed., p. 425-426), the Sadie Hawkins Dance was an ancient school tradition that dated back to Earth schools of the 1950s. Furthermore, the Star Trek Encyclopedia described the dance as a "girls ask boys" affair.
