Prom, the event of the year. The time where we all realize that things are finally coming to an end for school once again, which is great cause for a celebration. A night out dressed up in your best clothes with your closest friends, dancing and having fun, is definitely the best way to commemorate the last few months of the school year.

This year, the big event was held at the Belasco Theatre in Los Angeles. Before that, of course, we all had to meet up, get patted down, and file onto our buses for the two hour trip. Arriving at school on time, I quickly made my way to the gym. There, I was patted down and allowed inside, where I went to meet with my friends. It was all fine until more and more people began to fill the building. It quickly became very hot and crowded, and we all waited inside for what felt like much too long. The heat was really taking a toll on people. Two girls ended up passing out, and honestly, I had my own fears that I might faint too.

Luckily, we got on our buses soon after. I felt bad for those who were stuck on the last buses and had to wait for twenty others to depart before they could even board. The bus ride to the theatre was a welcome change from the hot gym. I was grateful for the open windows and the small amount of people.

When we reached the city, we all began talking and looking around excitedly, peering out the windows to try and spot the venue. We turned the corner and pulled up behind a few other buses, seeing kids flood the sidewalks in beautiful gowns and sharp suits, and made our way inside.

The venue itself seemed very nice, although I couldn’t see very well in the low lighting. There were multiple floors with plenty of seating and various activities, such as karaoke and pictures. There was food; however I did not get to try it myself because when I went to eat, all the food had been put away. That was somewhat upsetting, but I still had an amazing time. The dance floor was constantly packed with kids moving to the DJ’s music. I thought the DJ was pretty good this year, although it is harder to dance to trap music.

By the end of the night, I was completely exhausted and ready to leave. Overall, I had a really great time and thought ASB did an amazing job planning this. From the venue to the theme, it was all great and very fun.
