@ Central Arizona College

Tickets are on sale now during lunch for $6 or will be available at the door for $8.  

It is a girls’ choice dance, however scholars do not need a date to attend and can come with a group if they would like!

This is a high school only event!  Junior high scholars may not go, even if they are “invited” by a high school scholar.  High school scholars may invite one guest from another school, however they need a “guest pass” which they can obtain from Mrs. Ellsworth who will go over Heritage standards.  These scholars must strictly follow Heritage standards, present their pass with the ticket at the door, and show a picture ID.
Scholars must strictly follow Heritage standards with their dress or they will not be admitted to the dance!  Attached is a dress code flyer showing acceptable and unacceptable dress attire. This information will also be printed on the back of the ticket for your convenience.
