DATE: Saturday, May 6, 2017

TIME: 7:00-11:00pm

PRICE: $20 per person pre-registration; $30 per person at the door.
Ticket price includes entrance to the dance, dessert buffet, and refreshments. Click here to register. Each attendee should fill out a separate registration.

WHERE: The Ballroom Dance Company, 8900 SW Commercial Street in Tigard

WHO: The Homeschool Prom is for learners 14 years old through high school age who learn in a home-based model. Dates are not required. If you do bring a date, your date does not have to be a homeschooler (but still at least 14 years old). One person in a "couple" needs to be a homeschooler. Bring your friend, or a date, and have the night of your life surrounded by homeschoolers throughout Oregon & southern Washington. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. You can email Monique at registrar@ohen.org

Note: OHEN considers the "homeschool" community to include traditional homeschoolers, part-time homeschoolers, unschoolers, virtual charter school attendees, and any other type of learner whose education is primarily home-based. In other words, if you consider yourself a homeschooler, we consider you a homeschooler.

MUSIC: A variety of dance music will be provided by DJ Zeke! (All music will be profanity-free.)

DRESS: To make this a truly special occasion, dress is formal. (No jeans, t-shirts, or tennis shoes)

HINTS: You don't need to spend hundreds of dollars on a prom dress or a new suit. Here are a few ideas:

  • Check out sale racks and use department-store coupons
  • Visit Nordstrom Rack to find lots of good deals
  • Try upscale clothing consignment shops
  • Prom attire can be purchased on eBay
  • Check out Goodwill
  • Make your own dress
  • Borrow a friend's dress
  • For a free prom dress check out Abby's Closet at www.abbyscloset.org (They collect used prom dresses and give them to those in need at a special event)

PHOTOGRAPHY: If you would like a professional photo of you and your date/friend, Black Box Photography will be there to capture a great shot! You will receive the digital image through email so you can copy it & share it with family and friends!

GUIDELINES: To make the dance comfortable and safe for everyone, the following will not be allowed:

  • re-entry privileges to the dance
  • making out
  • inappropriate dancing
  • smoking, vaping, or any type of drug/alcohol use in the building or on the building property
