Minot State University Spanish students and the Spanish Club, in conjunction with Multicultural Support Services and Student Activities, will celebrate Latin culture with a Hispanic Heritage Month commemoration in October.

The campus entities cordially invite all MSU students, faculty, staff and the Minot community to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with the Mexico Lindofolkdancers from Minneapolis in the Ann Nicole Nelson Hall on Friday, October 22, 7 p.m.-8:30 p.m.

“The Mexico Lindo dance group performs a style of Hispanic dancing that showcases the Spanish and Native American heritage of Mexico.,” said Sara Gietzen, Spanish Club president. “We would like to share knowledge of the Hispanic culture with MSU and Minot. Mexico Lindo represents the Hispanic culture well by promoting the richness of its Mexican culture through their dance expositions. This folclórico group encourages positive role models for its members and all of the community. This community dance group serves as a learning tool by combining fun, physical fitness, moral values, and cultural enrichment. This year is the first time in my experience that MSU or the Minot community has hosted an event of this caliber.”

At the commemoration of Hispanic Heritage Month, adult and youth performers from the Grupo Del Baile Folclórico Mexico Lindo (Folk Dance Group Mexico Lindo) will perform a distinct style of folk dancing representing some select regions of Mexico. Performers will pose for photographs. Hors d’oeuvre will be provided in the Ann Nicole Nelson Hall lobby after the event.
