Latispánica – Aug 23 (Afternoon)

Latispanica PromoLatispánica’s mission is the promotion of the Hispanic culture, the celebration of diversity and integration in Nova Scotia. Latispánica Cultural Association participates in many cultural events through the year, supports cultural associations and is a member of the Multicultural Association of Nova Scotia.

Latispánica organizes a yearly event “Gala Latina” which brings together the Hispanic community in an evening of celebration and integration of the Hispanic culture. In addition, Latispánica supports organizations that provide aid to children in communities who are abandoned or live in conditions of extreme difficulty in different Latin American countries.

Latispánica is working towards of creating a Hispanic Cultural Centre which would be open to everyone and dedicated to the celebration of Spanish culture and language, and the strengthening of the Hispanic community in Halifax. The Cultural Centre will offer a venue where Hispanic artists could have an opportunity to present their work; members of the community could have opportunities to be immersed in the Spanish culture and language, and children with Hispanic roots could have the chance to explore and develop their cultural identity.

Diaga Dance – Aug 23 & 24 (Afternoon)

Diaga1From humble beginnings in 2010, Diaga Irish Dance has blossomed into a thriving and diverse community of dancers and their families. Irish dance builds physical awareness, confidence, and lasting friendships, and the focus of the school is on the development of each individual student. Our classes give students the tools they need to reach their fullest potential as Irish dancers.
