Traverse a thousand years of Japanese history while drinking in dazzling artifacts, surreptitious sake and 1920-40s tunes as Dances of Vice joins with Japan Society to bring you a Journey Through Japan in Deco Style.
Dolled up dames and gents should prepare to engage their gams to the Kuni Mikami Jazz Quintet featuring Mari Koga, and hit on all sixes after Akemi Kinukawa and Ben Rich teach a group swing dance lesson. Kimono-clad beauties Masae Satouchi and Kaoru Matsuoka will be flirting among the audience, and for the hoofers, DJ VaVa Voon will keep the jazz and swing rhythms coming.
Peruse the exhibition, take a swig at our speakeasy, and then have your makeup done in period style before entering our photobooth to document an evening to remember on the east side.

Dear Dances of Vice Class of 1955,
It’s nearly time to celebrate the end of another academic year with your fellow classmates and beloved school faculty as you set sail to uncharted waters of romance and dancing at the Enchantment Under the Sea Junior-Senior Prom.
Ask that special someone you’re sweet on to join you or take your steady down to Davy Jones’ locker for a nautical night you’ll never forget. Our Yearbook staff will be on hand to capture you in your finest, but leave those D.A.’s and cha cha heels at home or the principal will have something to say about it!
Ms. Shien Lee, Vice Principal
PS: Students interested in volunteering for this year's Prom Committee are encouraged to email email@example.com to help make this another memorable event for fellow classmates.

“Life is intrinsically, well, boring and dangerous at the same time. At any given moment the floor may open up. Of course, it almost never does; that's what makes it so boring.” -Edward Gorey
Our fifth annual Halloween celebration of all things whimsical, dark, and Edward Gorey was our favorite to date. Guests dressed as woeful widows, hapless children, vengeful villains and ghouls were invited to roam free in a grand Victorian residential palace built in the style of a Renaissance palazzo, as dancers, musicians and opera singers cast their spell under projections of dancing skeletons, giant spiders, gilded bats and cobwebs.
We look forward to seeing everyone at PhantasmaGorey '14!
Our New Year's Eve Ball will be taking place at The DTA this year. Stay tuned for details!
"When good Americans die, they go to Paris." -Oscar Wilde
For Valentine's Day, our guests need not travel far to experience the famed City of Love at our annual 1930s Paris themed Valentine's Day masquerade ball. A romantic dinner is paired with an evening of equally delectable live music, cirque performances, dancing and matchmaking games for the perfect Valentine's Day.
Not to leave our single friends out of the fun, guests flying solo are invited to attend with a pink rose to identify their romantic status and participate in a night of romantic revelry.
See you at La vie Parisienne, February 14, 2015!
