Celebrating Cultural Diversity

A dance troop from Uganda performs as part of the high school's inaugural International Night.

Students in modern language classes at La Cueva High School displayed projects and made presentations to celebrate their community's cultural diversity during the school's first International Night on Thursday, March 9.

The event featured food from many cultures, performances, a fashion show of traditional dress and more. A dance performance by a troop from Uganda topped off the evening. The Ndere Troupe, which performs around the world, was in town for performances at the National Hispanic Cultural Center and Popejoy Hall. The founder of the Ndere Troupe, Stephen Rwangyezi, was among the performers. 

"They were kind enough to join our celebration and share their cultural dances from Uganda," said one of the event's sponsors and La Cueva librarian Gerri Barnhart. The event also was sponsored by the LCHS Modern Language Department.

"This was the first time the Modern Language Department put on an international festival, but I have a feeling it will become a loved tradition here at La Cueva," she added.
