MSU celebrating Latin culture with Hispanic Heritage Month folk dancing event Friday
Minot State University Spanish students and the Spanish Club, in conjunction with Student Activities, will celebrate Latin culture with a Hispanic Heritage Month commemoration in October. The campus entities cordially invite all MSU students, faculty and staff and the Minot community to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with the Mexico Lindo folk dancers from Minneapolis in Ann Nicole Nelson Hall on Friday (Oct. 22), 7-8:30 p.m.
"The Grupo Del Baile Folclórico Mexico Lindo (Folk Dance Group Beautiful Mexico) performs a style of Hispanic dancing that showcases the Spanish and Native American heritage of Mexico," said Sara Gietzen, Spanish Club president. "We would like to share an aspect of the Hispanic culture with MSU and Minot. Mexico Lindo represents the Hispanic heritage well by promoting the richness of its Mexican culture through their dance expositions.
"This folclórico group encourages positive role models for its members and all of the community. This community dance group serves as a learning tool by combining fun, physical fitness, moral values, and cultural enrichment. This year is the first time, in my experience, that MSU or the Minot community has hosted an event of this caliber." Gietzen said.
At the conclusion of Hispanic Heritage Month, adult and youth performers from the Mexico Lindo dance group will perform a distinct style of folk dancing representing some select regions of Mexico. Photography is welcome. To learn more about the folk dancing group Mexico Lindo, visit www.grupofolkloricomexicolindo.com.
