On Saturday, January 31 Alverno High School hosted its annual Winter Formal, “The Yule Ball,” in the Villa del Sol d’Oro.

Winter Formal, an Alverno tradition, is the only all school formal dance at Alverno. Freshmen through seniors are invited to bring a date and enjoy the dance put on by Alverno’s Student Union (ASU). This year’s chosen theme was “The Yule Ball” and the Villa’s 1920s décor served as a perfect complement to the theme.

After enjoying dancing, a delicious buffet of appetizers, and photos the evening ended with the announcement of Alverno’s Winter Formal Court. Each class was represented by finalists who had been chosen through a larger pool of applicants. In order to be considered for Winter Formal, students were required to fill out an anonymous application and have an interview with ASU before each class voted on their princess at Winter Formal on Saturday, January 31.

The Winter Formal Court included freshman Ayanna Melin, sophomore Alexis Baro, junior Ciara Madigan, and senior LeAnn Zuniga.
