Please feel free to e-mail us at horizonsedctr@... with any special requests or song selections by April 18th. Of note, many songs are great to listen to, but are very difficult to dance to. We review songs on our list for "dance-ability" and lyric content. Please keep in mind it must meet our standards.
MENU: Available throughout the evening will be hot and cold hors d'oeuvres and beverages to include tea, lemonade and soda.
LOCATION: The Emerald Golf Club is located in Greenbrier, a neighborhood off of Glenburnie Road, very near to Craven Community College. The physical address is 5000 Clubhouse Dr., New Bern, NC.
CHAPERONES: There will be plenty of chaperones on hand. If a person is interested in being a chaperone, please complete the chaperone information on the registration form. There will be a lounge with a television available for those parents who wish to remain at the club during the dance, but not act as a chaperone.
GUIDELINES: In order to ensure that the dance is comfortable and safe for everyone, we have included the following guidelines for the behavior, etiquette, and attire of attendees.
1. Stay within established boundaries. Refrain from wandering around outside the facility. If you need something from your vehicle, a chaperone will escort you. If you are 18, you may leave before the end of the dance, but you will only be allowed back into the dance at the discretion of the chaperones. If you are under 18, you may leave early ONLY if your parent/guardian informs the committee, prior to dance night, that you have their permission to leave early.
2. No public displays of affection to include kissing, caressing or extended embracing, a person sitting on anotherâ€™s lap, etc.
3. Proper dance etiquette and behavior require that there is NO body against body, groping, or provocative movements
4. There will be no smoking, foul language, alcohol, drugs or weapons, including pocket knives.
This dance is formal, and long gowns are encouraged, but not required. Dresses must be tasteful. This means: no skin-tight or see-through dresses, no cut-outs in the dresses, and no slits or hems more than just above the knees. Necklines need to be tasteful, i.e. no cleavage showing. Strapless dresses are allowed, but they must be cut in line with the armpits and may not dip down in the middle. Elastic-top dresses must have shoulder straps. Backs are to be mid-back. Undergarments are to be worn under gown.
Please use your utmost discretion when selecting a gown to assure that it is tasteful and above reproach. Maintaining the dress code throughout the evening is the responsibility of the attendees
Note about dresses: For your benefit, please make sure that your dress stays "secure" when you jump up and down, wiggle, or do any other dance move. Over the years we have watched our young ladies struggle to keep their dresses "in place" while trying to dance. You will have a much more enjoyable evening if you are not fighting your dress all night.
This dance is a formal affair, but tuxedos are not mandatory. We do expect you to come in with dress pants, a collared, button-up shirt and a tie. Jackets are encouraged.
To register, please fill out the registration form and submit payment. There are no tickets; participants will check in at the door. Registration deadline is noon on Monday, April 16.
Each homeschool student may bring one non-homeschooled guest at $30.00 per guest. All homeschool students must be at least 14 years old and at least a freshman in high school.
IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS: Please call (252) 447-9885 or email us at horizonsedctr@.... Please put the word Formal in the subject line. Thanks!
