Despite what you may have seen in Hollywood movies, the school gym is not the only place you can have your prom. In fact, there may be many reasons why the gym isn’t available for your event or you may appreciate the advantages of choosing an off-site prom venue. Here are some points to consider.
You can’t use the gym anyway. Let’s start with the most obvious reason. Maybe the gym is out of service because they’re installing a new floor or your school is in the middle of other renovations. That’s no reason to cancel or postpone an event as important as the prom, especially when you can find another suitable venue.
You’ll have more help. Many proms get organized by a committee of parent volunteers, and one or more school employees. That can be a lot of work on top of your everyday responsibilities. When you use an outside venue you may have access to all kinds of expertise and services that aren’t included with your gym.
Your decorating and theme options multiply. Whether your theme is The Great Gatsby or A Night on the Nile, sometimes the gym still looks like a gym no matter what you try to do with it. Decorating a room designed for dancing can be a lot more rewarding.
It will feel more special: Most of all, you may make the night more memorable for your students. They’ll probably be more excited when they learn that their prom is going to be someplace different and more formal than the gym where they’re used to running laps and doing push ups.
