“We don’t allow sexualized dancing and insist on modest dress.
We especially encourage couples to socialize in groups.” “About 80 percent of the youth are here with dates,” estimated Leslie Mortensen, Young Women president in the Mission Viejo California Stake.
“We feel this event is successful in promoting the lost art of dating, of planning for another’s enjoyment and getting to know different people.” The prom cost per couple.
Not only are these the standards of our church, but the kids feel less intimidated in this kind of environment.” Megan Taylor of Trabuco Canyon was particularly excited because the Emerald Ball will be not just her first prom, but her first date.
Megan, a cheerleader at Mission Viejo High School, turned 16 last month and was excited to have a date for the prom.
