It’s one of the biggest nights of the year for seniors and probably the most exciting as well. Everyone will be dressed in their best, sporting flashy tuxedos and ballroom gowns fit for princesses while they groove the hours away on the dance floor. Limousines will pull up to the curb and flash photography will be illuminating the skies as dates promenade proudly wearing corsages.

It’s no wonder it can be nerve racking when asking a special someone to accompany you so how do you do it without breaking a sweat?
