Cultural Lessons Brought to Life

Recently, juniors and seniors in Ms. Nicole Gendjoian’s Spanish and Culture class traveled to Queens Community College to see a Latin Dance performance. After wrapping up a unit on Latin music, the class was able to experience what they learned in the classroom firsthand through the performance.

Students experienced traditional and contemporary dance, including Cumbia from Colombia, Mexican Jarabe Tapatio, Samba from Brazil, Argentinean Tango, and others. Juniors Meagan St. Aubain and Justin Tiernan participated in the interactive portion of the show, and had the opportunity to dance with the performers on stage. The students enjoyed the experience, and loved that the cultural experience brought what they learned in class to life.
