10th Annual Red Hook Community Prom

When: Jun 11, 2022 7:00-11:00 pm

Where: South Brooklyn Community High School

After three years of waiting, Cora Dance’s beloved annual retro, high-school-prom-themed, rockin’, 70s-80s-90s dance party returns: RED HOOK COMMUNITY PROM! Saturday, June 11 from 7pm-11pm at South Brooklyn Community High School, 173 Conover Street, Red Hook, Brooklyn 11231. Proceeds go toward the Cora Dance Tuition Assistance Fund to continue providing FREE and PAY-WHAT-YOU-CAN programs for students.* RED HOOK COMMUNITY PROM TURNS 10 THIS YEAR, and we want YOU there to celebrate! Think back. Wasn’t your high school prom the most magical night of your teenage life? OR, maybe your prom was a nightmare. Your date got drunk, you cried in the bathroom, and that dress you thought was, like, totally awesome? Three other people had the same dress AND better shoes. At RED HOOK COMMUNITY PROM, you choose to relive the magic or rewind time for a total do-over! What began as a community-wide spirit lifter after Hurricane Sandy has grown into a booty-shakin’ throwdown dance party for the entire community, now revitalized after years of quarantining, testing, masking, and elbow bumping! There are no inhibitions on the dance floor at this prom, with a photo booth by FOBO Studios; live performances by Cora Youth Companies and Shannon Hummel/Cora Dance Professional Company; and throwback 70s, 80s, and 90s hits spun by DJ Robert Lux (featured at Lollapalooza). And… the punch may be spiked with the help of Red Hook’s own Dry Dock! Join Cora Dance and the Red Hook community in-person once again to party the night away and to celebrate creating access to dance for ALL at RED HOOK COMMUNITY PROM! *THIS EVENT SUPPORTS SCHOLARSHIPS FOR STUDENTS ATTENDING CORA DANCE’S IN-STUDIO PROGRAMS. CHILDREN ARE WELCOME, BUT PLEASE NOTE THAT ALCOHOL IS SERVED AT THIS EVENT. WE ID AT THE DOOR! ATTENDEES UNDER AGE 16 MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT.
