Homecoming Dance

The Homecoming Dance will take place on Saturday, October 5, from 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.  Doors close at 8:00 p.m. and students will not be allowed to enter the dance after that time. A photo idea and ticket is required at the door for entry.  Students should be picked up promptly at the conclusion of the dance. The dance will be held in the Main Commons and refreshments on Main Street. The dance will be chaperoned by the Bloomfield Hills High School Administration, Student Leadership Advisors, Class Sponsors, and BHHS faculty and teaching staff.  Refreshments will be available for students at the dance free of charge.

All students are encouraged to attend the dance. No date is necessary to attend.  Many students come by themselves or in groups with friends.  If your student would like to bring a date from another school, the guest student will need to fill out a Guest Contract and turn it in at the time of ticket purchase.  

There is no requisite dress code for the Homecoming Dance; however, students must adhere to the BHHS Student Code of Conduct. Most students wear cocktail attire. Girls generally wear cocktail or full length dresses. Boys often wear a suit, dress shirt and tie. There is a coat check at the dance, so boys will be able to check their coats and girls can check their purses and shoes. Note that the dress code will be enforced. 

It is strongly discouraged for students to take limos or party buses to the dance. All limos and party buses will be searched and students are subject to search and question.  Doors close at 8:00 p.m. and limo checks may delay entrance times.

Bloomfield Hills High School does not sponsor any dance/event after parties. 

Music at the Homecoming Dance

Hello students and families, 

Homecoming is right around the corner. As we prepare for another exciting week, Student Leadership felt it was important for students, BHHS Administration, and Ms. Schultz, Administrator for Social Emotional Learning and Educational Equity, to come together to discuss the importance of being equitable, inclusive, and restorative throughout Homecoming week. 

One focus area that we would like to share with you is in regards to music at the dance. This year, students were able to request songs, giving them new freedom and choice. With that being said, we understand that some songs contain words that represent hate and bias or that may be harmful to some students. Rather than eliminating specific songs (censored/edited versions will still be used), we are asking that students take accountability for their choice of words and do not sing along when harmful language is used. 

This school has no place for hate and values the belief that “you don’t have to be one of to stand with.” Our hope is that dances continue to be fun, safe, and welcoming places for everyone. 

Sincerely, 

Student Leaders and BHS Administration

If you have any additional questions or concerns regarding Student Leadership run events, please speak with a Student Leadership Representative or contact a class sponsor or class advisor.
