THE ROUNDUP

Every December Xavier hosts an annual Christmas dance for Brophy and Xavier
students.

The event, characterized by formal dress, more classically inspired music and a $30
price tag has created a mixture of feelings.

“I’m not going … if you’re going to spend a lot of money on a dance, I would
personally spend it on prom,” said Will Harris ’15.

On the other hand some students said that the Christmas Dance is a great
opportunity to intermingle with Xavier students in a formal setting.

“It’s definitely a couple’s dance; if you go there solo don’t expect to have too much
fun. I think that the people who don’t have dates are the ones who say it’s not fun,”said Andy Vainauskas ’15. “Yes it’s a bit expensive but all the dances are pretty overpriced and it’s the price you pay to have a good time.”
