Matric Dance 2015 – Fairmont High School
01 October 2015
Matric Dance Fever took over on 01 October 2015. The majority of Cape Town schools held their dances (senior proms) on that evening. I cannot tell you how many desperate phonecalls I received over the week heading up to dance fever week. Micaela had thought ahead and booked me well in advance for her matric dance. The dances cause major excitement for communities as young couples dress up to the nines and arrive in the fanciest of cars for the dance that culminates the end of their school career.
I just wish schools would stagger their dances as the traffic jams that are caused on this evening is beyond imaginable. All businesses such as hairdressers, dressmakers, nail technicians and obviously photographers are definitely spread a bit thin on that day. There were at least three or four high schools having their dance that night in my area. Totally hectic!
Micaela’s parents hosted a few other parents and couples as well as some family members. It totally felt like a red carpet event as the crowd watched her leave for the dance. Luckily she wasnt Cinderella that evening and didnt need to be home by 12pm.
Micaela wore a gorgeous gold dress for her dance. It complimented her beautifully and offset her gorgeous red hair beautifully. Micaela’s parents live on a smallholding just outside Durbanville and cows graze in the fields. Micaela really wanted to have a few photos in the fields with the cows but apparently there was one mad cow who was a bit temperamental so we spent our time looking over our shoulders to make sure he wasnt charging us! Dont ever say I dont live dangerously! Luckily we remained safe and Micaela and her handsome date were able to drive off safely in a sexy black Audi TT to her dance.
Very small world but I only found out just before the dance that Micaela and my niece are good friends. Kelce is also an past Fairmont Student. Her matric dance can be viewed here!
