Crepe Paper And Crinoline: Senior Citizens Think Back On Their Senior Proms

Seniors do a dance called the stroll at the senior prom.

The senior prom is a last hurrah of high school, before students throw grad caps into the air and start a new chapter in life. But recently the Phoenix Art Museum had a different take on the senior prom — for adults 60 years and older.

It had the decor and the corsages and the photos; but there was also bingo and a 1950s cover band called Come Back Buddy.

Oh, and it started at 3 p.m. The Show asked a few attendees there to reflect on their high school proms.

Annika Cline was a producer for KJZZ's The Show from 2014 to 2019.
