Classes Learn Cultural Dances during Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration
Spanish teacher Ms. Elliott is passionate about her content, her students, and especially her culture. A native of Colombia, South America, Ms. Elliott considers herself an ambassador of Latin Culture. She decided this year to bring as much of it to life in her classroom as she could and committed to make learning fun.
The fun started in early September when her Spanish classes began studying the various types of Latin dances as well as their history. Students learned about instruments, music, routines, and costumes.
On Friday, September 19, Ms. Elliott’s classes were then treated to the real thing. A Latin dance instructor led classes how to dance Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, and more.
