Gusto Latino was held April 29, 2011, at Old Brick in Iowa City. This annual Latin dance party brought together a wide range of students and community members of diverse backgrounds to interact through music, dance and conversation. The event included dancing lessons, a dance contest, live musical performances by Salsa Vibe and the UI Latin and Jazz Ensemble, and a DJ mixing Latin beats with hip-hop and pop music.
The ICC is made up of U.S. and international students of all majors, language abilities, international interests, ages and experiences. ICC cross-cultural programs are coordinated by University Housing and UI International Programs.
