The month of April is upon us meaning it is time for the biggest dance of the year, prom.
This year’s Brophy-Xavier Prom will be held in the Harper Great Hall April 24 from 8 p.m. to 11:30 p.m.
Last year Brophy went tropical with a beach themed prom. However, this year’s prom will have a more urban inspired feel.
“The theme is going to be New York ‘Empire State of Mind’ based of the (Jay-Z) song,” said student council member Marcus Papadopoulos ’10.
Tickets for this year’s prom will cost $90 dollars a couple or $45 for juniors and seniors deciding to “go stag.” Tickets will be available from members of student council and also Assistant for Student Activities Ms. Sandra Dennard in the SAC starting April 14.
The dress for this dance requires formal attire, so students should sport their best Wall Street suit or Hamptons tuxedo.
If anyone is having a hard time deciding dressing for the theme, “just think empire state of mind—classy,” said student council member Eric Chalmers ’10.
For the festivities of the night there will be various street vendor food and acts just like those found in the Big Apple. There will also be carriage rides just like those in Central Park.
