Prom Night gives these seniors the opportunity to have one last great time with their school mates before they go their separate ways to further their studies or into the work place. According to Teen Times, “it is just one big formal party with some activities in between, organized to being the curtain down on their high schools years in style.”
This year the décor at Prom Night will carry a distinct Egyptian atmosphere as Teen Times go all out annually on its décor. “Our themes as everyone knows changes every year. It doesn’t mean that students have to dress to match the theme, but we don’t discourage it either,” Teen Times said.
“What is a Prom? A Prom is one night where students create a lifetime of memories. We provide the venue, the music, the snacks, the ambiance. They simply have to bring the fun and the Prom spirit. That is all. They have to create their own fun. And judging from how Prom has grown over the past 26 years, our students have fully grasped the idea of Prom Night,” Teen Times added.
Central to Prom Night is the crowning of a Prom King & Queen, a Prom Prince & Princess, Best Couple, Best Dressed girl and boy and much more. Teen Times also gives a prize to the “Best Arrival” at Prom which has become a spectacle in and of itself. Entrance to prom Night 2022 is US $20 per student.
