The word prom evolved from the word promenade, which is simply when someone marches or walks into a ballroom to be announced.

Although formal dances similar to prom have been around since the 1800s, the way we modernly do promenade didn’t start until the 1950s, shortly after The Great Depression. They began promenade because social distinctions were of very high importance then, and the tradition has stuck ever since.

Regardless of how promenade started, the tradition is carried on in a new and modern way, and many people not only enjoy participating in promenade, but enjoy watching it too.
