One of the things that makes this dance different and unique from other proms is the high standards at which those in attendance agree to abide. This formal event requires participants to adopt the dress and behavior guidelines from the For the Strength of Youth pamphlet (a standards guide for all Youth of our Church, given to us by our Prophet).
In order to create an environment that invites the Spirit, the Ashburn Stake leaders have
developed a dress standard for stake activities.
Doctrine – Our bodies are sacred temples. (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
Principle – Dress and appearance are a sign to God that we are disciples of Jesus Christ and
that we love Him. Modesty invites the companionship of the Spirit. How we dress affects our behavior and the behavior of others. “Never lower your standard of dress. Do not use a special occasion as an excuse to be immodest.” (For the Strength of Youth, Dress & Appearance)
This means all in attendance must:
- Dress modestly and respectfully (See Dress Code section)
- Abstain from any alcohol or drugs
- Use clean language
- Dance respectfully and appropriately
