School Prom

In the United States, a prom, short for promenade, is a formal dance held at the end of the years of high school and college, called junior prom and senior prom respectively. In British English such an event would be called a ball, although in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand it is also often called a formal. In Australian schools the terms used are either formal or sometimes as Leaver's Dinner, usually so when the night includes a meal. In Ireland it is known as a debs (an abbreviation of debutante ball). In the U.S. a "formal" is typically a similar dance that is held by a fraternity or sorority affiliated with a certain college or university. In Australia, the term "prom" has also come into sparse usage and in Britain it is becoming widespread, because of US influence. The name is derived from the late ninteenth century practice of a Promenade ball. The end of year tradition stemmed from the Graduation Ball tradition.

Middle School Prom

Middle School Prom? No, Let's Call It A "Graduation Dance"...

I just read a post at a blog by a middle-school teacher in the Bronx detailing how middle-school "proms" are becoming such a big event for Bronx kids because of the high rate of drop outs they have in high school. When you think about it the middle school prom that these kids have in the 8th grade might be the last all out school party they'll have. Oh, they'll surely have attended a lot of parties outside of school by the time they're 18, but being in a school party is a bit different than having fun at a friend's house drinking and dancing and whatever it is kids are up to these days...

This teach told of how much fun the kids had: "the girls wore beautiful gowns made of shiny fabrics with lots of glittery jewelry and 4-hour updo's. The boys wore everything from traditional suits to island style linen suits to dressy hip-hop style suits."

One parent who was a DJ took care of the music and everyone had fun grinding on the dance floor.

Just like high school prom, middle school prom have their after parties. But of course it's regulated, although some do sneak a party or two that parents don't know about...

At the end of the party, the prom king and queen were crown in low-key sort of way, and then it was over. They cleaned up and got the kids home safely. And then they went home.

A bit bittersweet, ain't it?
