Renaissance will offer attendees of all grades a chance to dance under the stars at their annual formal, Nov. 14 from 6:30-11p.m. at the California Market Center (CMC).
The CMC is located at 110 E. 9th St. in Los Angeles. The site will include a dance floor under a glass ceiling, catering and, unlike years before, a separate room for dining.
“Big events have been held in this location, like the L.A. Fashion Market. It really is a beautiful place,” said Kenneth Seto, Renaissance adviser.
The menu is titled “Taste of Italy” and includes a variety of Italian dishes, such as lasagna and vegetable au gratin.
Like previous formals, a king and queen will be selected by votes of attendees. Nominations will take place Oct. 28 and top five voting is scheduled for Nov. 4. Final voting will be at the formal, where the winners will be crowned.
“It should be fun. I have high hopes since it’s my last year. It’ll also be my first time, so I don’t want to be let down,” said senior Maria Bonilla
