Themed “City of Stars,” Junior Prom will take place at the Glass House in Downtown San Jose on Saturday, March 26 from 8 to 11 p.m. In the weeks leading up to the event, the junior class used various promotional tactics to amass ticket sales and excitement.

Promo Video

Members of the junior class teamed up to film a promotional video for JProm, which was posted on the class Instagram. In the video, juniors Avishi Reddy and Edward Sha got ready for the event, showcasing their looks before heading to the Glass House to dance and provide a glimpse of the venue.

Star Jar Guessing Game

Hosted in the quad during early bird ticket sales at lunch from Feb. 14 to 18, the Star Jar Guessing Game saw many juniors attempt to guess the number of stars in a jar set on the table where class officers sold JProm tickets. The stars were crafted over five months by 2023 Class Secretary Serenity Chu. Generating hype and promoting sales, the event had students send in their guesses via a Google Form, and the winner, Jeffery Su, was announced at the end of the week. He won a free ticket to JProm.

Class Dance

Beginning in early February, members of the junior class mastered a class dance during morning practice sessions. Led by choreographers Sophie Au, Edward Sha, Aneesha Jobi and Maya Little, the group of ten juniors put together a performance to Usher’s 2010 hit “DJ Got Us Fallin’ In Love.” On March 2, the group performed the dance at the quad as a part of junior Lina Wang’s flash mob promposal for junior Wayne Suh.

Fashion Show

The annual JProm Fashion Show featured junior members from InDesign, Lynbrook’s fashion club, and other juniors who showcased prom outfits. This year, it was held at the quad on March 4 during lunch, with models strutting down a runway to tracks like Dua Lipa’s “Levitating” and ABBA’s “Dancing Queen.” They wore pieces from Tuxedo Warehouse, which is offering discounts for the junior class.
