围观国外小伙伴们的毕业舞会
作者:21ST   来源:21诚博娱乐客户端原创    日期: 2014-05-26
舞池璀璨,乐声悠荡……又到了让美国少男少女们嗨到爆的毕业季啦!在这个时刻,填志愿神马的不再是焦点话题,他们中的99%都只在乎在学校的最后一场盛大派对——毕业舞会。能否找到抢手的舞伴、穿怎样的礼服、坐什么豪车、是否会被选为舞王舞后,哪怕是一个不起眼的小细节出了岔子都可能让他们尖叫抓狂。
“毕业舞会”一般称作School Prom或Prom,由promenade简写而来,原意指中学生举办的需要正装入场的舞会。想见识一下国外小伙伴们经历过的各种毕业舞会么?So easy!快随世纪君来围观啦!
奢侈豪华版我们需要全套的美丽!《Gossip Girl》中Blair一袭从巴黎专门空运过来的孔雀羽晚礼,可谓奢华的典范。
随便一件戴领结的晚礼服或是抹胸长裙,完全不足以衬托其“高大上”的所在。女生们需要在几周前就开始置办礼服,更有人光一件礼服的预算就达200美元,瞬间高大上了有木有!Boys usually dress in tuxedos with bowties. Girls usually wear formal gowns or dresses. Weeks before, girls will already be super excited. They begin prom dress hunting. The spoilt girls go to Macy’s department store and buy a $200 new dress.
除了礼服,与之搭配的高跟鞋、配饰、指甲油、眼影,甚至香水,一样都不能少,而且妹纸们还会请专业美发师和化妆师为她们做造型。果然是细节决定成败,哪里都马虎不得啊!You also need to buy heels, jewelry, nail polish and even eye shadow to match the color of your dress. Have plenty of sleep the night before the prom because there is a lot to do next day. In the afternoon, you go to the hairdresser. Some girls choose to have their makeup done by professionals as well.
体贴的男生还会根据女伴的礼服选择自己的礼服。此外,还要负责准备花束与香车,并亲自接女神到舞会现场。If your choice is a long silk, bright gold dress, to make a good match, your prom date had better bring a gold tuxedo. Then you can seat there with your friends, looking fresh and pretty, until the limo picked you up.
传统文艺版没有传统仪式的舞会不完整!收到女生的胸花(Boutonniere),男生则可以回赠腕花(Flower Buttons)。
在传统文艺女青年眼中,只是穿着华丽怎能承受毕业之重?只有沿袭了各种传统“仪式”的毕业舞会才是完整的。比如:女生需要送相称的花束给男伴,让他别在胸前。Traditionally, girls give boys matching boutonnieres (a small collection of flowers they pin to their jackets).
舞会开始之前,在会场外的集体合影也是必不可少的,许多学校还会有走红毯和签名的环节。Before the actual dinner starts, you usually have a group photo outside. Girls stand in the front line and guys stand in the back line.
举办舞会的场馆不仅需要精心装饰,而且需要DJ或是现场乐队暖场。快歌展示的是集体舞蹈的活力青春,慢歌则轻摇出与舞伴相拥起舞的小暧昧。Students make a lot of effort to decorate the gym to make the event special. There is usually either a DJ playing the hottest hits or a live band. But there will always be slow songs so you can dance with your date.
舞会的最后,也是高潮部分,就是“舞会之王”与“舞会王后”的投票。“舞王”和“舞后”往往都是学校里最受欢迎的男生、女生,他们不仅相貌出众,而且在其他校园活动中也往往小有名气,被人尊敬。The students elect a Prom King and Queen. Often they are the most popular students. The two have their own dance to celebrate their election.
男校/女校版邀请得到舞伴的男生才是真男人!同理,找得到舞伴的妹纸才是软妹纸!听说了上面两个版本,男女不同校的小伙伴都笑了:世界上最远的距离不是生与死,而是你在这所学校,而你的舞伴还不知道在另外哪所学校。《华尔街日报》更是为TA们辛苦“赐名”:Promposal,即求舞伴之意,由毕业舞会(Prom)与求婚(Proposal)二词合成而来。It may not seem like a big deal to students at coed (男女同校的) schools, but in single-sex schools, where are the girls to meet these boys? Where are the boys to meet the girls?
对此,有人选择上网寻找舞伴。Facebook就是寻找男伴的不错去处;尤其是对那些对长相没有太高要求的妹子来说,舞会见面的时候一定会收到更多“惊喜”~For Danielle Wordelman at Loretto High School in California, a date does not have to be Prince Charming. Fortunately, the world of Facebook is a source of males, which is how Wordelman got her date. Online social networking sites are obviously useful for the busy teenager.
对于保守的男生来说,课外活动则可以制造相处机会,对心仪的姑娘加深了解;日久生情之后,还怕邀请不到妹子参加舞会么?However, Mitch Mannering of Jesuit High School in Sacramento is more of a traditionalist. He suggests after school activities as a good way to meet girls. “Being involved in a tech crew or plays lets you get to know someone over time,” says Mannering.
当然,通过朋友介绍一直是一个不错的选择;男校怕什么,只要有人认识对面女校的妹子,两班联谊妥妥的!妈妈再也不用担心我的毕业舞会了!Then there is the tried-and-true method of date hunting: calling up a friend of a friend. “I only had one boy for an option and it was set up through my friend,” says Hallie McKnight at Loretto.
奇葩规定版我们要像期末考试一样严肃!你以为有了礼服,找到舞伴,毕业晚会就万事大吉了?NO,NO,NO,其实在舞会举办之前,每个学校都会发布一张类似“舞会通知”(School Prom Rules and Regulations)一样的文件,告诉还没来得及踏出校门的同学们:你们太天真了!一起来看《纽约时报》曾刊登的美国高中毕业舞会奇葩规定吧!
Time release离场时间:这就是传说中的进场容易离场难么?
舞会开始后一小时锁门,之后不许任何人离开。散场前半小时可以开始离场。与父母一起的学生可以提早离场。(老师,快放我粗去啊,我爸妈就在门外~)The doors will be locked one hour after the start of the dance. No one will be admitted after that time. Students will not be released from the dance until one half hour before the dance ends. A student may leave early with their parents.
Dress code衣着规范:规矩不要太多哦!
不许带帽子。不许穿蓝色牛仔裤。男生要穿有领衬衫和正装长裤。女生不许穿露乳沟的裙子、裙摆或者侧开叉不得短于大腿中部。衣着不规范的学生将不能入场。(老师,那么可以露背么?)No hats at prom. No blue jeans. Boys should wear collared shirts and dress pants. Girls cannot wear dresses that expose cleavage, extend above mid-thigh, have slits extending above mid-thigh. Students not appropriately dressed will not be allowed in to the dance.
Student check-in登记入场:有木有过安检滴赶脚?
拿包和大衣的学生入场前必须接受检查。(老师,我真的没有带小抄~)Students with bags, coats will be asked to stop at the check-in table and will be subject to search.
Dancing舞会守则:这位同学,你跳舞的姿势貌似不合规定哦!
所有跳舞的学生必须保持直立姿势——不许做性感动作。所有人的双脚必须一直保持与地面接触。不按规矩跳舞的学生将会被要求离场,并在接下来的一整年内失去参加舞会的权利。All dancers must remain upright—no sexual bending is allowed. Both feet must remain on the dance floor at all times. A student dancing inappropriately will be asked to leave the dance. This may result in loss of dance privileges for the year.
