And we had two great hip-hop workshops with Christopher Courtney & Thomas Stone of Culture Shock Chicago, and Dan Qwan Gibson of Chicago Dance Crash.
Last week we attended Senn's annual celebration, International Fest. With 38% of its students born outside of the United States and with over 55 different countries making-up the student body, Senn is one of the country's most diverse high schools. Latin dance too is infused with elements from many different cultures and we are proud that Inspiración is part of bringing that Senn!
