This year’s Gusto Latino drew large crowds, who came to dance salsa, participate in a dance competition, and enjoy the sounds of Salsa Vibe. The event was held at Old Brick in Iowa City on Friday, April 19, 2013. Check out these photos taken by Mark Zhu of Student Life Marketing + Design.

The infectious beat and flurried movements of Latin music and dance will take center stage at this year's Gusto Latino.
"There are a lot of diversity events on the University of Iowa campus, but this one is a really great display of dance and music, and it gives the community and the student body a chance to have live, authentic music and be able to experience the dancing talent of people from all over Iowa," said Kimberly Tranel, a graduate student in the University of Iowa International Programs and an organizer of the event.
