The realms of modernism and resurgence merged as students from the Grade 10 and Grade 12, along with the respective staffs from both departments, partake on the Junior-Senior Promenade Dance with its theme 'A 21st Century Renaissance: The Big Reveal' last February 17.
The fruitful event started off with an imposing opening salvo which featured numerous sets performing a Grand Cotillion de Honor. Students were performing with glee along with their respective partners as they execute their dance with grace. After the opening salvo, the welcoming remarks were headed by Dr. Alexander S. Acosta which further inspired the hearts of the audience as he gave them all the opportunity to savor the grace and refinement of the event.
After the proper formalities, the juniors and seniors went to the stage to get ready for The Big Reveal for the purpose of presenting the Prom Pairs.
Not long after the presentation of prom pairs, the Turn Over of the Key of Responsibility was then headed by the SSG President, Ina Shaina Angelika Castro as she passed down an imperative aspect of leadership to Paolo Andrei Emmanuel B. Dipasupil. This was then followed by Paolo's Acceptance Speech.
The purpose of reminiscing the good and finest moments of the seniors were also given attention as a video was presented to represent Batch Ardent's (formerly known as Batch Delta), remarkable history and aspiring prophecy.

It was followed by Dr. Paulita D. Pal's special message which then led to the most awaited part of the event: the Social Dancing.

Afterwards, the Vote of Thanks was then executed by Dr. Caridad A. Canete to recognize the fulfilling gratitude that was claimed during the promenade, which then paved another way to start a social dance once again.
The magical night had not come to an end there yet. Shortly after the second social dance, the major awards were then given to the outstanding students to glorify them even just for a night. Rogsh Garcia and Keana Icasiano won the Run-way award for the promenade. The judges perceived the dancing talents of JM Quimba and Thea Astley to be astonishing, awarding them the Dancing award.

It was indeed a memorable night for every junior and senior student. Before the event ended, the ball was open once again to pave way for one last social dance. The students were also given a chance to take pictures of the event for them to document and for them to be able to remember the night. Truly, it was another successful event for the juniors and the seniors that they would forever cherish whatever circumstances that may arise!
