people-160789_640

When: May 18th, 2014

“Dancing on the Water, Prom Cruise, is a student run homeschool prom serving the greater Detroit area reaching from Lapeer to Toledo, from Detroit to Jackson.  Many Co-ops, sports teams, and support groups participate in making this prom happen!  There needs to be several student volunteers who want to invite their friends, pick out décor, and make prom happen!”

Boat and Location: This beautiful prom cruise takes place on the Diamond Belle river boat. They load at a very nice Plaza next to the Detroit River, downtown Detroit. The Rivard Plaza is a well lit, open, clean, and safe environment for students to park, take pictures, and board the river boat. They always encourage students and their parents to be aware that they are in Detroit and even though this is one of the safest places downtown, everyone needs to keep their street smarts. The Diamond Belle is run by Diamond Jack’s River Tours and runs up and down the river the full three hours of the Prom! There is two dance floors, one located on the main level and one located on the roof for dancing under the stars. This is such a spectacular night!

Food: All students are encouraged to get dressed up and head for a dinner out with their friends before attending prom. There will be snacks, drinks, and dessert on the boat. The senior representatives will determine what type of snacks.
