Spanish 4 students from Senior High School in Mr. Ruiz and Mrs. Connors’ classes recently engaged in a cultural experience. The classes took a field trip to the Jeanne Rimksy Theater in Port Washington. The show featured various Latin American countries and their heritage of music and dancing. Salsa, merengue, cumbia, bachata and tango are Hispanic heritage dances and some students danced salsa on stage. For lunch, they visited a Colombian restaurant where they sampled steak, chicken, rice and beans and flan.
