The theme of the dance, determined by the prom committee, is inspired by the Great Gatsby.

“[As a committee], we thought [the Great Gatsby] would be an awesome theme because it was such a fun movie and time period,” prom committee member Hannah Hilton said.

The committee has been preparing for the dance for weeks and meeting for work nights three times a week to make decorations and other preparations.

“We don’t really have anything specific that we are most excited for about the dance, however we are really excited about the venue and that it’ll be much larger than last year,” Hilton said. “We just hope everyone has a great time.”
