Event Details



Tuesday, May 30th

Please arrive by 5:45pm for pictures before boarding starts.


Who can come: Dancing on the Water, Prom Cruise is a student run homeschool prom serving the greater Detroit area reaching from Lapeer to Toledo, from Detroit to Jackson. Many Co-ops, sports teams, and support groups participate in making this prom happen! There needs to be several student volunteers who want to invite their friends, pick out decor and make prom happen!
All schools welcome.
AGE: Junior/Senior Prom. Ages 16-18 + alumni up to 21 years old.

Boat and Location: This beautiful prom cruise takes place on the Diamond Belle river boat. We load at a very nice Plaza next to the Detroit River, downtown Detroit. The Rivard Plaza is a well lit, open, clean and safe environment for students to park, take pictures and board the river boat. We always encourage students and their parents to be aware that they are in Detroit and even though this is one of the safest places downtown, everyone needs to keep their street smarts. The Diamond Belle is run by Diamond Jack’s River Tours and runs up and down the river the full three hours of the Prom! There is two dance floors, one located on the main level and one located on the roof for dancing under the stars. This is such a spectacular night!

Food: All students are encouraged to get dressed up and head for a dinner out with their friends before attending prom. Dinner is not served. Refreshments provided.

Gentlemen, please impress your girl with a nice  suit or tux. Must have slacks & a button down. No jeans, no tennis shoes or old sneakers. 

Ladies: With a modest mindset, dress in your fanciest style for a beautiful night of elegance. 
Medium to full length dresses required. Bring a shrug. 
Not allowed: low back cut-outs, plunging necklines, cleavage, rib cut outs, see-through dresses, dresses above the knee. Basically, only long modest dresses allowed, please.
High heels are at your own risk. They are not recommended for climbing up and down the boat stairs. Please bring flat shoes to change into for moving around the boat!

Prom Organizer & Chaperones reserve the right to not allow admittance on the boat if the attendee is not wearing proper attire. 

VOLUNTEERS: Prom 2017 will not be run without volunteers like you! Contact us with how you would like to help out!
(Students can join the committee for up to 50% off their ticket!)

Arrival time details: The cruise runs from 7:00pm-10:00pm.
Boarding time is 6:30pm.
Arrival time: 5:45pm.
Everyone must arrive at the dock by 5:45pm to ensure everyone gets there safely and has time to take a few pictures before boarding. The boat will NOT be on site at 5:45pm, please enjoy your time by the water while you await it's arrival. It does take awhile to check tickets and board all guests.The boat will pull away at 7:00pm.


 Chaperones: Prom Cruise will have 5-6 Adult Chaperones over the age 25. Chaperones are background checked. All chaperones are parents of students on board, are teachers at local homeschool co-ops, or are a sibling of the prom director, Jess. The job of a chaperone is to ensure safety, monitor bathrooms, monitor PDA, make sure dancing is appropriate, clean up trash, make sure upstairs dancing deck doesn't get too full, monitor street safety and parking decks while students leave the boat.

1 teacher from Homeschool Connection of Ann Arbor: Peter Schriemer

P.s. Although geared for homeschoolers, we recognize that a lot of our friend groups are part-time, used to be, or hasn't ever really been homeschooled. In this case, we still really wish you to come, for we love you, obviously.
We also realized that a ton of our friend group has previously graduated the high school setting...again, feel free to come. Age range 16-21. Come celebrate the Senior of 2017! This night is for you!
