A History of School Proms
In the late 1890s, a diary of an Amherst College student noted that he had been invited to an early graduation dance at nearby Smith College for Women. Prom days in the early 1900s were considered simple events, where everyone wore only their Sunday clothes and no one thought about buying an outfit just for that event.
However, in the 1920s and 1930s, this special school day began to become more elaborate. Students started showing up in cars, bought new party dresses and danced to the music of a band. It wasn’t long before they started dressing up a bit more and started thinking about formal dresses and ball gowns.
When the U.S. economy began to grow after the war, school dances became more extravagant events in the 1950s. Girls began to take their outfits more seriously and started buying the perfect ball gown. The competition to become the prom queen became more and more important as the girls started looking for the perfect dress and the perfect date, which hopefully would lead to more popularity.
Almost at the same time that balls were becoming more socially important, venues moved from high school gyms to country club banquet halls, hotel ballrooms, and any other “fancy” or high-class place that could be found and rented. This naturally led to even greater financial pressure for some, as it meant that the perfect night of dancing became increasingly expensive. There were prom dresses, prom shoes, makeup, hairdresser’s appointments, tuxedos and corsets, and the popular limousine that could be rented for the night.
Today, however, high school dances have become more elaborate and extravagant, which also means they are more expensive. The amounts can quickly add up if all expenses are considered. High school dances often become an overnight affair. To reduce the likelihood of accidents or alcohol consumption, there may be parties after this special school day.
Sometimes they are held at the school and booths are set up offering food and activities, usually accompanied by parents. In addition, several parents often gather to volunteer their time at home and offer certain food selections and activities after this special school day. Students simply go from house to house, and some parents volunteer to take students to different homes. This is a good way for students to continue to enjoy their evening without problems.
