If you’re new to the NWA Mom Prom and don’t know what to expect, we’ll fill you in on the details here. The main thing to know is that Mom Prom is an all-girls dance party for women age 21 and up. So if you like to dance with your friends, you’re going to LOVE it.
We play a WIDE range of music, including today’s most popular songs as well as songs we loved in college and high school. (A little 80s, 90s… maybe a few disco “I Will Survive” favorites?) Our DJ, Frankie Magallanes of Dancenhance Entertainment, is AWESOME. He’ll do his best to play your requested favorites.
FLASH MOB: For those who want to join in, we also do a Flash Mob during Mom Prom. Here’s how it works: Just CLICK HERE to see a video of this year’s Flash Mob Dance. Learn the moves shown by our fearless Zumba teacher and volunteer choreographer, Kelsey Lee. (Thanks, Kelsey!) When the music plays, just jump on the dance floor and join the Flash Mob. It’s FUN but totally voluntary. And don’t worry about forgetting the moves because Kelsey will be on stage leading the Mob, so you can always just follow along.
Don’t forget about the exciting Prom Queen Crowning, sponsored by Sam’s Club. The Queen is chosen at random among all ticket holders, so anyone can win. (No popularity contests here! Mom Prom is a drama-free zone.)
This year we’re going to have a great outdoor lounge under a tent, surrounded by a beautiful grove of trees with twinkle lights. If you need to catch your breath between dance sessions, come hang out in the lounge which will feature some sleek, white furniture from the new line of Hank’s Event Rentals.
Dancing makes you thirsty, so we’ll have the professionals from Pink House Alchemy at the bar to fix you a drink. (Water and punch are free, but bring some money along in case you want beer, wine and signature cocktails from the donation-only bar.)
Here are a few more of our favorite dance shots from past Mom Proms.
I think we were in the midst of YMCA in this shot taken in 2015. We love this picture because it captures the energy of the night. This is the 2013 Flash Mob! (Notice the bare feet? That’s how we roll past 9 p.m.)
Sometimes we even have a spontaneous performance, like when this mama did the dance from the Thriller video. We were all so amazed we just gathered around to watch. She has performed it for us every year since the first Mom Prom (even when she was pregnant!) Can’t wait to see it again in 2017.
We always crown a Mom Prom Queen. The Queen is chosen at random among ALL ticket holders, so anyone can win. This year’s Mom Prom Queen Crowning is sponsored by Sam’s Club of Bentonville. Pictured above is our first Queen from 2013, Marie Starr. She was so surprised!
