Students had a blast while celebrating the close to this academic year and the upcoming graduation of this year’s senior class.
The main event of the night? Dancing. Prom attendees got down throughout the three-hour dance party. From swing dancing to hip hop-based choreography, dance battles were regularly held at the main stage.
Prom fashion was also a big hit for MVHS this past weekend. From elegant ball gowns to brightly colored tuxedos, MVHS students got creative with their prom ensembles.
Senior twins Alex and Phillip Piwczynski wore matching baby blue and orange tuxedoes inspired by the comedy “Dumb and Dumber.” They said they'd been looking forward to mimicking the movie since childhood.
“We’ve been planning this out since 8th grade”, said Alex, while leaning on his matching orange cane.
Junior Maggie Yanni, amongst many other MVHS students, wore Chuck Taylor tennis shoes with her prom dress.
“It always hurts to dance in heels," she said. "A lot of girls like wearing Converse just to make sure we dance well. I want to be able to dance with my friends all night.”
The MVHS class of 2012 graduation will be at on Thursday, June 14, from 6:00 – 7:30pm.
