Imagine traveling back in time to 18th century France. Envision the sights and sounds of the beautiful and elaborate masquerade balls of the era.

This past Saturday, Starmount High School transformed Cedarbrook Country Club by taking a modern twist on this classic theme. Upon entrance, students were provided with their own masks to disguise themselves as they delighted in what the night had to offer.

In the ballroom, students kicked off their shoes and danced the night away with their dates, where they indulged in everything from line dances to that romantic dance with a special someone. Upstairs, students took pictures in a new, streamline photo booth, the first school to use the new model. But if guests wanted to unwind, the lounges and patios were open for a little relaxation.

Towards the end of the night, juniors and seniors collectively held their breaths as the DJ was ready to announce the winners. Juniors voted for Gavin Adams as Prom Prince and the role of Princess went to Courtney Snow. Seniors voted for Andrew Smythers as King, and Chloe Gordy won the crown as Prom Queen.

Despite the rain, the Starmount faculty and prom committee worked hard to provide a night that all prom attendees were able to enjoy and remember.
