The glitz and glamour of Hollywood made its way to prom at Southfork Ranch May 7. The Ranch decorations were put together as if students were celebrities walking the red carpet among arrival to the main room.

Once in the main room, attendees danced or conversed at the candle-lit tables, accompanied by a Captain Jack Sparrow look-alike.

“Jack Sparrow kind of creeped me out since it felt like he was everywhere I was, but it was a cool touch to have someone from ‘Hollywood’ be at our prom,” senior Catie Shirley said.

After attendees settled in, the Big Man on Campus contestants took to the floor with a choreographed dance.

“It was an excellent experience working with the other contestants, or shall I say, big men,” senior Bryan Nguyen, winner of the May 3 beauty pageant said. “We had a rehearsal from 5 to 10 p.m. the day before prom and practiced most of the time.”

Senior Payton Millis and junior Connor Farrington also performed a choreographed dance to “Love on Top” by Beyoncé.

“We just decided we really wanted to do a dance, so I choreographed it the week before and we rehearsed the morning of prom,” Millis said.

After the dance acts, prom-goers enjoyed the atmosphere and extras provided.

“The chocolate fountain was amazing,” Shirley said. “I loved how they had different options for what food we could dip in the chocolate.”

The stars of the show were then announced, as students cast their votes for royalty upon entering the ballroom.

“I feel both honored and humbled to have been voted prom queen by my peers,” senior Elisabeth Teitelman said. “We have such a competitive class and I’m grateful to represent them with this crown.”

Prom also turned out to be a bonding and learning experience.

“I taught a group of people how to line dance to Copperhead Road,” senior Caroline May said.
