International Dancing Celebration to Teach Students and Community Dance Steps from Around the World

Dance moves from around the globe will be on display at Colorado State University as part of the World Wide Dance Party.

The premiere event will celebrate the cultural differences and similarities that unite people as a community through dance instruction and music. The World Wide Dance Party will take place from 8-11 p.m. on Saturday, April 5, in the Lory Student Center on campus.

Sounds of salsa, hip-hop, Indo-Arabic rhythms and other cultural music will fill various rooms from Room 203 to 228 on the second floor of the Lory Student Center. In each room, instructors will teach cultural dance steps to different genres of music. Nine rooms will represent various cultural regions.

The World Wide Dance Party aims at giving Colorado State students and community members the opportunity to learn about the diversity of dance and music. It will also connect them with more than 25 different ethnic groups that will be represented at the event.

The World Wide Dance Party is sponsored by the Office of International Programs and the Council of International Student Affairs in collaboration with Apartment Life, the Fort Collins International Center and other Colorado State international student organizations.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit or contact Jenn Christ at (970) 491-5917 or at
