Latin America (Africa, Meet Spain. And Portugal. And France….)

All Around This World Latin America "Everywhere Map"

This week’s online class takes us to Latin America where people from two continents collide in historic devastation…and we dance.

Be wise in your telling . . . — while at the same time celebrating the creation of new forms of music and dance that merge Spanish storytelling with the African beat. Though we nod to the past, we power on. Let’s go.
