Cherry Creek High School held its Starry Night-themed prom May 13 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, marking the end of high school.
On the night of the dance, Mile High was also hosting George Washington High School’s prom on the other side of the stadium and the Mile High Beer and Bacon Festival on the field.
Dancers spent the evening under the stars enjoying music by DJ Outloud.
This venue offered a smaller dance floor than last year’s prom at City Hall, so Ari Kutzer, also known as DJ Outloud, had to make many accommodations for a dance floor that didn’t allow lights or lasers.
Kutzer used the venue’s projection system to run a live “video jockey” show after transporting a trailer’s worth of rental equipment around the stadium. The Cherry Creek junior and has been a professional DJ for two years.
“Judging by the fact that the dance floor was overflowing in every direction, my guess is there were about 2,000 attendees,” he said.
Prom is organized by Creek’s Student Senate. Dr. Krista Keogh, Cherry Creek’s activities director, made sure the prom ran smoothly.
Kutzer and other students who helped run the prom did not make it home until 3 a.m.
It was a beautiful starry night and the perfect way to end the school year.
