Dr. Elhage's Latin dance fair spreads diversity through dance

Dance Fair Flash Mob

On April 24, the Tate Student Center lawn came alive as a dance floor as students learned bachata, merengue and salsa on their way to class. Students from the Spanish 4080 class, Diversity through Dance, hosted the Latin dance fair to earn extra credit and spread knowledge about Latin cultures.

Under a bright, sunny sky, students covered the lawn with Latin music in the air. Some dancers were learning the basic footwork and movements while others started incorporating turns. Even the class professor, Faud Elhage, supported the students in the lessons and joined in on the dancing.

“The idea is to have my students experience [this] not only as students but also as teachers, instructors and also as performers,” Elhage said. “And experience diversity.”
