In past quarters, the Spanish club has held salsa lessons for the student population, but this quarter they want to spice things up. They plan to have a two day session, starting with beginner’s salsa dancing the first day and intermediate salsa dancing on the second day. They also plan to have a fundraising bake sale within the next few weeks.
Bringing Whatcom to New York
