Today, we're featuring S.A.L.S.A., the Spanish American Latino Student Association, from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG). The group was performing at El día de los niños at Center City Park on Saturday.
S.A.L.S.A. was founded at UNCG, Spring 1992 by five students. While the organization has grown considerably, it remains true to its purpose of providing a place for Hispanic/Latino students at UNCG to come together for fellowship and to celebrate their heritate, to enhance the UNCG community's understanding of the Hispanic/Latino cultures, and to be of service to Hispanics/Latinos living in our area.* As soon as the above members were finished performing, they invited the audience up to dance with them. It was great to see so much fun and positive energy as they moved around the stage. Don't let the name S.A.L.S.A. fool you. They do so much more than dance! While the organization may be winding down as their school semester comes to a close, you can stay in touch with S.A.L.S.A. through their facebook page.
