Promposal Season Officially Begins
by Caleb Rhodes on Friday, April 24th, 2015
When Spring Break ended, Milton students returned to a newly defrosted quad, temperatures above 40 degrees, and an air of happiness. The campus continues to breathe with the energy of a new sports season, and seniors are excited to be one step closer to projects and the looming prospect of graduation. Some of the most highly anticipated events of the year are also fast approaching with Boat Dance in early May and Senior Prom just a few weeks after. Already excited about the upcoming events, many Class I and II students have engaged their creative minds to come up with exciting, interesting ways to “prompose.”
Over the past few weeks, Milton Academy has been home to many creative proposals to both Boat Dance and prom. This year, promposals have taken place all over campus. Adam Bramson (II) asked Charlotte Zonis (I) by setting up lemons to spell out Boat Dance in the squash courts—the same courts where Charlotte captained a successful Girl’s Squash team this winter. Nearby, in Norris House, Dominic Cozier (II) asked Jennifer Costa (III) by having his Norris housemates reenact the wildly popular “Fifty Shades of Norris House” YouTube video.
Jacob Aronoff (II) invoked the power of music and organized the Miltones to serenade Caitlin Connelly (I) with a rendition of the “Arthur” theme song, replacing the last line with, “And go with Jacob to Boat Dance.” Miltones member Nathan Strauss (III) described the moment as “very cute and well timed!” While these are just a few of this year’s promposals, plenty of time remains until Boat Dance takes place on May 9th and Senior Prom on May 30th.
Last year, before Jacob employed the Miltones, multiple students serenaded their dates by singing to them in the bottom of the student center. Former Head Monitor Liam White (‘14) asked Juliet McCann (I) by placing signs on hurdles of her track event.
Boat Dance and Prom are the only dances where dates are expected and encouraged, and, for seniors, prom is one of the last opportunities for the class of 2015 to party and hang out together. It’s dance season, and things are about to turn up.
