October 10, 2017

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — Salsa Social will bring Latin American flair to State College. The Center for the Performing Arts at Penn State, in partnership with Penn State Ballroom Dance Club and Borough of State College, invites the community to learn how to move to the music at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 8, in Room 201 of the State College Municipal Building, 243 S. Allen St.

The two-hour event is scheduled in anticipation of the Spanish Harlem Orchestra performance on Thursday, Nov. 9, in Eisenhower Auditorium, on Penn State's University Park campus.

“Whether it’s the first time for you or you’re a seasoned salsero, it will be a much richer time at the concert if you get up and dance ahead of coming to the theater,” said Medora Ebersole, the education and community programs manager at the Center for the Performing Arts.

No dance experience, dance partner or reservation is required for this free public event.

This presentation is associated with the Center for the Performing Arts Diversity and Inclusion Collaborative. The University’s Equal Opportunity Planning Committee provides lead funding. Sandra Zaremba and Richard Brown provide support. For more information and a list of program partners, visit
