As a culminating activity for World Language Month, Señora Hutter’s 7th grade Spanish classes at Northport Middle School learned how to dance “la bachata”– a dance from the Dominican Republic. Señora Hutter demonstrated the steps of the dance, and the students practiced with their partners. After students were confident in the dance, they participated in a dance contest, or “concurso de baile”. Prizes and certificates of recognition were given to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. Students had fun learning a traditional dance from a different country and culture!
