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… and plenty of fresh favorites, too.) Our DJ, Frankie Magallanes of Dancenhance Entertainment, is AWESOME. He’ll do his best to play your requested favorites, and he has been known to jump down on the dance floor to teach a few line dances, too.
2018 Flash Mob
FLASH MOB: For those who want to join in, we also do a Flash Mob during Mom Prom. Here’s how it works: 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.
Here’s a video of Kelsey teaching the 2018 Mom Prom Flash Mob dance.
If you’re nervous about remembering the moves, don’t be! If you forget a few moves, just look at Kelsey and follow along. This is a no-stress kind of dance party.
Prom Queen Crowning
Don’t forget about the exciting Prom Queen Crowning. (The Queen is crowned at 11 p.m. and must be present to become Mom Prom royalty!) 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.)
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!
