5:30 Mujeres en Movimiento Bailoterapia: Join Veronica Ramirez of Immigrant Movement International’s project Mujeres en Movimiento for an exercise dance class. This class is one of IMI’s most popular workshops; it is not your average zumba, jazzercise, or aerobics class. Vero choreographs energetic dances to a variety of Latin American rhythms from Mexican Banda to 80s Spanish rock ballads, and uses dance to raise awareness about health issues as well as build community and empower women in our community. Come dance and meet the amazing women of IMI! The class will be in Spanish, but English speakers and persons of all gender expressions can follow along to the moves.

6:00 Ñukanchik Llakta Wawakuna: A folkloric group for children that works exploring their identity, teaching Spanish and crafts. They also use the art of dance to educate and strengthen the culture and identity to the first generation of Andean migrant families. They believe in the importance of keeping the languages Kichwa and Spanish in their workshops.
