Colombia Brings Salsa Lessons to World Affairs Councils’ ‘Ideas Summit’ on Wednesday, May 6th
Online Dance Lessons First in Series of Experiences to Connect Colombia and the United States Virtually
Washington, DC — For the first time, the Embassy of Colombia will host free salsa lessons
during the World Affairs Councils’ Ideas Summit.
The online event — taught by Yoii Campo, a professional salsa dancer from Cali, Colombia — is the first in a series of virtual experiences designed to strengthen the bonds between the United States and Colombia.
“We must create a sense of community and stay connected now more than ever,” said Ambassador to the United States Francisco Santos. “We are pleased to start this virtual series to bring Colombia closer to our American friends – and what better way to start than through dance.”
The dance lesson — which includes interesting facts about Colombian culture as well — is part of a series of free salsa lessons the Embassy of Colombia started last year and has now taken virtual to allow everyone to learn to dance while taking care and staying at home.
