Heartland Homeschool Prom


Heartland Homeschool Prom April 28,2023 was a day to remember. After some beautiful spring days, it was rainy and wet in Columbus, Indiana for pictures. My daughter along with some of her friends made the best of it, and we had some fun taking pictures in the rain before heading to Indianapolis for the Heartland Prom.


The Heartland Homeschool Prom is the event of the year! Tickets went on sale in January and sold out in a record 20 min with over 600 students attending from all over the state of Indiana. It takes place in scenic downtown Historic Union Station in the Grand Hall. Designed in 1888, Indianapolis was the first city in the world to create a Union Station where train companies would have a central meeting point for passengers to transfer trains with ease. Now over 130 years later, Union Station is one of Indianapolis' premiere venues. With over 3200 square feet of stained glass and its towering 60-foot arched ceilings, this massive 13,000-square-foot ballroom is the backdrop for prom 2023!The theme this year was Secret Garden. The food was delicious and the dancing was a blast. Mocktails were even served.


Heartland Prom offered a unique blend of traditional group dances (think Jane Austin style) with the live sets performed by a DJ! Traditional dances are taught by a live caller on the night of prom so no previous dance experience is required! Seth Tepfer is a professional live caller from Atlanta, Georgia, and has more than 25 years of experience teaching traditional dances! Mr. Tepfer has taught at hundreds of events, choreographed dances for movies like The Hunger Games Part 2, and now travels calling at events and festivals around the world! A great time was had by all!
