Now that Spring has officially sprung, the annual tradition of Robinson’s Night of Knights is just around the corner. The Night of Knights is the upperclassmen dance recognized by many students as prom. On Monday, Feb. 27, the Robinson Student Government Association’s (SGA) Instagram announced the theme for the 2023 Night of Knights: Starry Knight.

“So, first off, we discussed possible themes at a senior class meeting, keeping in mind that the theme had to be approved by admin… There were three main options; however, the first two [weren’t] approved by admin, so we went with option three, which was Starry Knight,” Robinson’s Senior Class President Sara Gainer said.

The Night of Knights will be hosted once again at the Florida Aquarium from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, April 15. Many of the upperclassmen who attended last year look forward to another night with fish and friends.

“I think others should come because it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience and can be very enjoyable with the friends you love and a great lasting memory to look back on,” Amani Delk (‘23) said.

As always, the Night of Knights is an event for juniors and seniors. However, underclassmen may be invited to the dance by an upperclassman as dates. In terms of dates who aren’t currently enrolled Robinson students, guest forms for guest tickets will be available in Portable 11 starting March 2.

“I’m going to prom this year to enjoy the last big dance of high school and to have a good time with my classmates before we part ways for college,” Delk said

Tickets are $65 and can be purchased online from March 1 to March 31 on mypaymentsplus.com or on the mypaymentsplus app.

“People should come to prom because it’s a right of passage for upper-level students and it is a part of high school,” Head of Events Committee Cassidy Chapman (’23) said
