The JS Prom is a traditional dance since the early 90’s all over the world. Here in Dumaguete the latest JS gathering Prom was celebrated last year, 2015. Now that the K-12 Curriculum has been implemented, the celebration of the JS Prom saw now being slowly extinguished in some schools. Instead of JS (Junior and Senior) Prom, only the Senior Ball has been continuously applied during the month of February.
This Senior Ball is only open to senior students, or so we called 4th year students, and excluding the Junior or 3rd year’s students of the school.
Some schools here in Dumaguete have already celebrated the said Prom early this week. These schools include St. Catherina Cittadini School, Science High-School, and other public schools here in Dumaguete. The schools of St. Louis School Don Bosco and Silliman University (High School) have said to have their JS Prom and Senior Ball this weekend of February 13 and February 14, 2016.
The Big event
With the annual celebration of the JS prom, the theme is one of the most important concepts of the event. The JS Prom for this year has stated with the themes of Enchanted, Yule, Royal, Elegance and even Fantasy from the different schools here in Dumaguete.
The JS Dance is a traditional waltz dance that can last from 3-5 minutes per dance. This is the night where one student can show the gentleman and the lady inside each and every one of them, and for sure one of the most unforgettable moment of their high-school life.
