Dances/Mixers and Events

Mixers (i.e., think dancing + socialization, dates optional), date dances, and junior prom/senior ball are tradition at Bellarmine, and are held at various times throughout the school year. Our Junior Prom and Senior Ball are held in the spring, with faculty serving as wait staff for students and their guests. It's an unexpected reversal of relationship that everyone looks forward to!
