PROM NIGHT NERVES
Spring is the time of year that American
teenagers start thinking of formal dances,
graduations, graduation parties, and, if
they are seniors, the most exciting event
of all: the school prom. While it is a special
time for teenagers, it is also a time filled
with high expectations and a lot of peer
pressure. Only the most popular couple get

silly photographs and fancy clothes - the
prom is a mythic part of youth culture and,

complete with full banquet facilities and
professional entertainment. Students arrive

usually a minimum six-hour hire period.
Prom night can be one of the most memorable
events in teenager's high school years.
Like getting married, the prom is a ritual
of great symbolic importance. High levels
of expectations can cause anxiety and, for
some, hopes for the evening are so high
that they find the night a big disappointment.
