Guest passes for dances are always due on the Wednesday before the dance. Dance tickets are never sold at the door. Please do not come to the door expecting to buy a dance ticket. Make sure to buy early! -- we always have the best prices on dance tickets the first day of sales.

  • Students must present their IHS Student Identification Card to be admitted into dances.

  • Guests must be at least a freshman in high school and not older than 20 years of age.

  • Irvington administrators have developed the following dance behavior guidelines:
    Sexually suggestive dancing will not be tolerated.
    Feet should be on the floor at all times.
    Hands must remain visible and may not be on knees or the floor.
    Students are not allowed to bend over while dancing; they must remain vertical.
    Students may not lie down on the floor while dancing.
    All articles of clothing worn into the dance must be worn out of the dance.

Students are aware of expectations for appropriate conduct and dress, and in addition to this form, students will be warned through announcements and immediately before the dance begins. Therefore, students will receive no warnings once the dance begins, they will simply be asked immediately to leave the dance. Students who dance inappropriately or break any of the school rules will be removed from the dance by one of the administrators or escorted out by the school resource officer, if necessary. Students asked to leave the dance will not be eligible to attend the next scheduled school dance. Juniors and Seniors who violate the dress code or dancing guidelines may regain the right to attend his or her grade-level prom or ball by fulfilling requirements determined by his or her grade-level administrator.
