Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month
¡Hola, amigos! Have you ever wanted to learn to salsa dance? Would you like to take your sweetheart on a fun, free date where you do not have to leave campus? Come down to the aerobicsroom at Striplin Fitness Center from 5-6 pm on Thursday, September 21st to make those dreams come true. Tania Alvarez, the Hispanic Heritage Chair on the Cross Cultural Committee (C3), is bringing BSC students a salsa lesson by Corazon de Alabama. Corazon de Alabama, translated, “Alabama Heart,” is a Birmingham-based organization that shares the heart of its culture by teaching and performing salsa and other forms of Latin dance.
Salsa dancing is just one of the many free C3 events held in honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month. Recognized at BSC from September 15th to October 15th, NHHM celebrates Hispanic and Latino Americans’ cultures as well as their contributions to North American history. C3 uses this time to provide wonderful opportunities to learn, experience and honor the traditions of those who have done so much in our country and all around the world.
What better culture to celebrate than one with amazing food and super-impressive dance moves? After the salsa dance class, you will be turning heads all night long with caliente moves at your cousin’s wedding this spring. To take advantage of this opportunity of a lifetime, go to Striplin on Thursday the 21st at 5 pm. Whether you are an experienced dancer or you have dos left feet, everyone is welcome for an exciting night of dancing with friends while learning about the beauty of Hispanic culture.
