Prom was different this year compared to other years. I say that because it was supposed to be junior prom, but the junior class officers decided to change it to prom so more people could go. What made it even more different is they decided to have one of the junior class officers DJ for prom, Rebecca Kiflom. They asked her to take over DJ and she asked me to help her out, too. We both were the DJ’s for the night. It’s different because I don’t think they’ve ever had any students DJ for prom.
The theme for this year’s prom was ‘’Forever Young.’’ The junior class officers decided to do that because you’re only young once. And I thought it was a perfect theme, because again, it was different--at least I have not ever heard any other Logan High dances with the theme Forever Young. As a bonus, there is even a song originally by Alphaville, too.
As far as I know, we were the first Logan High students to ever DJ for the prom.
The day before the dance, we had to help decorate in the girls gym. It really looked nice and organized even though it took a couple hours. It was totally worth it.
Saturday, the big day, Rebecca and I were very nervous because we just hoped everything would turn out well. We were mainly nervous because of our music choices. We had to make sure everything would work, especially the speakers, because the gym was really big and we had to make sure you could hear the music everywhere, not in just one spot. So the time passed, and the dance finally started. We began playing a couple songs while waiting for the others to show up.
Time passed, and more started to come, and we played better music that people knew. As I was watching the students dancing, I could tell that they were having fun just from their facial expressions. The whole night we had people come up to us to request a song.
When the night ended we got a lot of compliments about how fun ‘rom’ was, and that’s what we wanted to hear. I was glad a lot of people liked how we were DJ’s, especially since, as far as I know, we were the first Logan High students to ever DJ for the prom.
