The UI’s annual Latin dance party Gusto Latino will be held Friday, April 20, from 7:30 p.m. to 1 a.m. in the IMU Second Floor Ballroom. The event is open to the public and tickets are available at the door. Cost is $5 for adults, $3 for children, and free for students with an ID.

This year’s activities include Latin dancing lessons, a dance contest, live musical performances by Salsa Vibe, and a DJ mixing Latin beats with hip-hop and pop music from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m.
