Prom (from "promenade") is a social rite of passage among high school students, usually at the end of senior year.
Prom dates may be romantic sweethearts or platonic friends, and LGBT students may take same-sex prom dates.
Groups of friends often travel together to and from the prom in stretched limousines rented for the evening.
Prom has also been the setting of hijinks and other pranks as students take funny prom photos or show up with outlandish dates.
Traditionally, the formal dance features a prom court of nominees for the Prom King and Prom Queen naming ceremony in which popular and well-liked students are elected to represent their classes.
