Who will be this year’s Mom Prom Queen?

One of the things we love about hosting the NWA Mom Prom is the element of surprise. We never know who might be crowned the next NWA Mom Prom crownQueen because we choose the queen at random from among all the ticket holders. Anyone can win.

Your high school prom queen crowning might have been all about a popularity contest, but we’ve ditched all that teenage drama. We’re a little older, wiser and “ain’t nobody got time for that.” We believe every woman deserves the title of queen for a night.

Here are a few photos of the past two prom queen crownings at the 2013 and 2014 Mom Prom. Marie Starr wore the crown beautifully as the first queen of Mom Prom in 2013. Last year, she passed the crown along to her lovely successor, Queen Abby Ivy. The Queen’s “court” is made up of the friends who came with her to Mom Prom that night, and we always love seeing how the Queen’s friends are over-the-moon excited for their friend.

2014 crowningThis year the Queen will be given a tiara, flowers and a $500 Visa shopping card. (Yeah, baby!! The Queen is going to SHOP!)

The Queen’s crowning and her incredibly generous prize is sponsored this year by Tropical Smoothie Cafe. This year’s Prom theme is “A Night in the Tropics” so we think it’s more than fitting that a local company like Tropical Smoothie Cafe is part of the pinnacle moment at Mom Prom. Thank you to the owners of this mom-friendly company for making this year’s Prom Queen crowning possible.

We’re so excited to see all of you on Prom night on May 30, 2015 at the Metroplex Event Center in Springdale. (Click here if you need a ticket.) This just might be your year to be QUEEN!

Flash Mob Dance for 2015 Mom Prom!

Let’s dance!!! Click on the video above to see the 2015 NWA Mom Prom Flash Mob Dance!

This has become a Mom Prom tradition. Just learn the moves above and then join a few hundred women on the dance floor so we can flash mob together Mom Prom 2015 Are You Induring Mom Prom on May 30th. (The flash mob is not mandatory. It’s just for fun and you certainly don’t have to do it perfectly to join in and enjoy it. Or… sit back and enjoy the people-watching. Either way, it’s fun!)

Back by popular demand for the third year running, our fearless choreographer is the beautiful Kelsey Lee, who is a fellow mom, teacher and Zumba instructor here in Northwest Arkansas. (Thanks, Kelsey, for putting together another fun dance for this year’s Prom night! You rock!) Kelsey will be on stage during the Flash Mob dance, leading us through the moves just in case we forget a few.

Every year we love hearing stories about moms getting together to practice the Flash Mob dance in the living room while their kids play. Have fun with it! (We’d love to see photos or videos of your practice sessions!)

The only thing you MUST have in order to do this Flash Mob dance is a ticket to the Prom! If you don’t have a ticket yet, click HERE to get it.

Below are a couple of photos of previous Flash Mob dances taken during Mom Prom 2013 and 2014. It really is as fun as it looks. We’ll let you know on Prom night when the Flash Mob dance is about to happen so you can be sure to grab a spot on the dance floor. See you then!
