On the behalf of many highschool students, prom has been seen as “elegant” in many different ways- whether that be showcased via movies, tv shows, friends, or family members. The expectations of prom or any dance for that matter are usually pretty high. Prom is the night where you go out with a date or your friends to dance and have a good time. However, the hassle of preparing yourself for prom could be quite cumbersome. For first-timers, prom could seem overwhelming considering the different atmosphere, people, places, and expenses. 

Miranda Strong, a prom attendee said, “I have been to prom before, and it was kind of boring so I’m  excited to say the least. This year, I will not be dining with the food that is provided at prom. However, I will be there on time for the dancing which I’m  really excited about!”

Helena Stadlberger, a senior at SLHS said, “I am very excited for this year as it will be my last dance that I go to as a student in high school. I am so excited for the dancing and memories that will last forever!”

Tyson Head, a first time dance attendee, said, “I have never been to prom before, but I did go to the BPA dance. It was a let down. Personally, I would like to hear the song ‘Life in the fast lane’ by the Eagles! I am not going to prom with anyone in particular, but I did buy my prom ticket with Grant Bebow and have friends that are going. I’m not much of a dancer, but we’ll see where the night takes me.”
