The prom is a semi-formal dance or gathering of high school students. This event is typically held near the end of the senior year of high school. New Heights Educational Group has two options for homeschool and charter school students to attend a prom.
Dear Home school families information is now available for the Fort Wayne CHAT Home School Ball to be held in May. If you would like information on this event please email us at [email protected] or call 419-786-0247.
The CHAT Ball is a ballroom-style event, which always includes a 30-minute class on ballroom dance at the beginning. Many of the homeschool youth have taken ballroom dance in a weekly dance class, and some attend monthly dances at IPFW.
The Homeschool Prom is usually in late April. Here is the most recent invite, so you can read about it.
CHAT organizes a Christmas Ball as well, in December. Kids that have never taken any ballroom classes still have a good time and dance plenty if they choose to. Dates are optional. Homeschool Prom is for all high school ages, and CHAT is for any teens.
BOAT & LOCATION: This beautiful prom cruise takes place on the Diamond Belle River Boat. We load at a very nice plaza next to the Detroit River, in downtown Detroit.
The Diamond Belle is run by Diamond Jack’s River Tours and runs up and down the river for the full three hours of the prom! There are two dance floors; one located on the main level and one located on the roof for dancing under the stars. This is such a spectacular night!
The prom is a special event, especially if it is your first one or your last one. We also know getting a prom dress or tuxedo can be very expensive. So, NHEG has provided a list of organizations that collect donated dresses to make your decision process easier and more affordable.
