There is something so exciting about a matric dance. The men looking handsome in their tailored suits and shiny shoes and the girls looking breathtaking in their dresses with their hair and makeup done immaculately. It is so different from any other fancy dress up event, there is an energy and excitement that no other event has.
I love seeing the girls dresses. I was asked to take photographs of the couples at their predrinks before they left for the Matric Dance at St. Stithians. These were a great bunch of boys – I was very impressed to see how well they looked after their dates during the evening but still had fun with each other.
When they left for the dance they had hired a party bus – I had never been in one of those buses – it was a mini night club – the music was blasting accompanied with laser lights, definitely a fun way to arrive.
I hope you boys had a wonderful dance.
