Shining lights, good food, better dance moves all come together in one room. Pausing momentarily to laugh with joy at the sight of the room of dancing students, one young person then quickly resumes his rendition of the macarena, rejoining the festivities. On December 9th, Jesuit and Ursuline students helped to host the 9th annual Notre Dame Christmas dance. About 50...

The music at this...

Lights of all colors shone bright both on the outside of the school, and on the convivial dance floor. Diverse in many ways, Jesuit, Ursuline, and Notre Dame School students came together to enjoy a night full of refreshing treats, uncontrollable...
As 7:00 PM rolled around, many students from Jesuit, Ursuline, and Hockaday made their way to the Terry Center for the annual Freshman Mixer.  Music blaring and refreshments ready, the Terry Center was not the room that held Prayer Services and Masses that night; it was a giant dance floor allowing for the many new freshman from each school...
