The Dexter prom experience in the past has been all about games and karaoke and no dancing. Dexter’s prom is not comparable to the traditional prom. We have cared more about how the “dance floor” has looked like than the dance itself–If you can even call it a dance.
However, this year, the Dexter High School made a step in right direction. We are having our prom at the Michigan football stadium, which is awesome compared to all of the previous years.
Previously, Dexter’s prom has worked like this: first you buy tickets for you and your date for seventy dollars. Next, you rent a $200 tux. Then you take your date out to a fancy restaurant that costs way too much money. Then you and your date go to the prom.
This process for prom night is normal. However, Dexter’s prom differs from the norm. Instead of keeping the night classy and going to the dance at a specific venue, we go back to our school, where we play games like putt-putt golf and card games. Most of our prom is spent walking around and waiting in lines for our favorite games. And in my opinion prom was a huge waste of money, to dress up and play games.
Finally, Dexters prom will be like other schools prom, where it will actually be a dance instead of like a “carnival”. I definitely support the change in venue as well as the change in prom style.
