With the school year coming to a close, activities such as Prom and Homecoming are popping up on everyone’s calendars. Attending school dances is a big part of the high school experience as it’s always fun to dress up and have a fantastic night with friends. Prom and Homecoming are definitely two of the most exciting dances at Brashier, thus making them the most attended.

“I would say that Prom is definitely more attended than Homecoming since, in my opinion, it is better planned and is much more memorable! Also, a lot of people that go to Prom or Homecoming usually attend the other,” says senior Danielle Washock.

Both dances have high attendance rates, but Prom is exclusive to juniors and seniors. Homecoming, however, is for all grade levels. Additionally, Prom is held at a location outside of school, while Homecoming is at the school.

“Two of the biggest differences between Prom and Homecoming are the attire and atmosphere. Students definitely take more time preparing for Prom than they do for Homecoming. From the dresses to the dinner reservations, Prom is definitely a bigger high school milestone that, I believe, everyone should get to experience,” says Brashier alumnus Madison Gary.

With the differences come the similarities. For example, kings and queens are announced at each of these events; the kings and queens are chosen by the student body’s votes during lunch.

“The similarities I noticed between both dances were the decorations. I felt like both places had a formal theme and used a lot of the same formal decorations, despite Homecoming being more casual. Both dances also contain a lot of the same types of music and dancing. A lot of people go to dinner before those dances, take pictures, and have after-prom,” says Brashier alumnus Lyla Warsi.

Dances take a lot of work to coordinate and, for the most part, turn out great. However, there are some things that students feel should be added or changed.

“Something I would change about Homecoming would definitely be to move it to a bigger venue. Also, food other than light snacks would be good, maybe something like Chick-Fil-A,” says junior Gianna DeRosa.

Overall, Homecoming and Prom are two fun dances to help wrap up the year. Even though both dances are exciting in their own ways, some students can’t help but choose a favorite.

“My favorite between Homecoming and Prom would definitely be Prom. It just seemed a lot more organized and planned out. Also, it was more fun for me, since more of my friends attended,” says Washock.
