As an entertainment company, it’s our goal to see students have a great time at prom with the right blend of music programming, true production caliber sound system, and cutting edge lighting and atmospheric effects.
It’s hard not to notice articles on the web about school dances. In some cases, we’ve seen dances boycotted by students due to school restrictions. In some of these instances, the students have promoted and held their own events.
The balance for schools and administrators is likely tricky. On the one hand, they are likely getting feedback from their community about manner of dance (such and grinding) and acceptable dress codes. On the other hand, providing a safe and controlled venue for students on a Friday or Saturday night is the best thing for students to stay out of trouble.
In the most recent article we’ve come across, a school in Rockford, Illinois has a 21 page presentation for acceptable attire. (We’ve linked to it here.) They helped illustrate our opinion of the difficult nature of enforcement, stating “traditional interpretations are often at odds with fashion and cultural trends.”
We understand the school’s guidelines have ruffled a few feathers with the text, “… girls may wear the same dress but due to body types, one dress may be acceptable while the other is not.”
Whether you have a strict dress code or are a student hosting an alternate prom, we’re here to provide high quality entertainment and work with all schools and individuals.
