Annual Christmas Dance slated for Dec. 10 at Xavier

By P. Erik Meyer ’14

Xavier plays host to this year’s winter dance, “Under the Mistletoe,” on Dec. 10.

“It should be pretty good,” said Mr. Pete Burr ’07, Brophy’s Student Council adviser. “There should be more attendance than last year.”

“It will be a unique setting,” said Mrs. Carol Hodus, Xavier’s Student Activity Director.

Xavier Student Council members are working with their art department to create an art walk where student art will be displayed.

“The girls want a First Friday feel,” Mrs. Hodus said.

First Friday in Phoenix is a monthly event downtown featuring local art.

The dance will likely feature some stations in the Robson Plaza where students can pick up kettle corn, hot chocolate and other edibles, student bands and light refreshments in Vestar hall, and Duke photography will be present.

“They are going to make it more of a social event,” said Brophy Student Council member Kyle Chalmers ’13.

The dance will take place in the Student Activities Center and the Stark Art Gallery will be open.

“It should be one of the best Xavier dances,” Chalmers said.

Boys must wear a jacket, dress pants, tie and dress shoes. Girls may wear a strapless dress as long as it is floor length.

Students may attend with or without a date and may bring one non-Brophy or Xavier student.

Guest passes may be attained in the Xavier Student Council activities office.
