Afro-Latin Rhythms: Dancing and Learning with Julio Montero

Friday April 8, 2022
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Hosted by the Department of French, Hispanic and Italian Studies

Join us for a free Afro-Latin dance lesson with Cuban instructor Julio Montero, a former student of French and Spanish Studies at UBC! This intercultural education and wellness event is the perfect way to take a break from exam prep and unwind through Afro-Latin rhythms and movement.

Julio will:

  • Give a presentation on the background and cultural relevance of Afro-Latin dancing (such as salsa, merengue, bachata and reggaet贸n)
  • Provide an Afro-Latin dance demonstration (performance/video)
  • Teach you some basic Afro-Latin dance moves (done individually without a partner)
  • Play some Afro-Latin music for you practice, dance and move to!

No previous dance experience required.

Masks will be required. Remember to bring your water bottle, as you might just break a sweat! 馃槈

The event is open to all members of the UBC community. This is an inclusive event; we welcome members of the LGBTQ2+ and IBPOC communities.
