Selkirk College celebrates intercultural dance

Selkirk College’s International Department hosted its fifth-annual Intercultural Dance Show on Friday.

The show featured Selkirk’s international students, who performed songs and dances from their native countries.

“In previous years we’ve had Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Brazilian and others. This year it’s a majority of Indian dancers,” said Danny Beatty, manager of the International Department.

There was also once dancer from the Philippines.

The event was free to attend and open to the public and allowed international students to share part of their culture with their fellow students and the greater community.

“Everyone who watches it absolutely loves it and comes every year if they can. It’s a great way to showcase at least the dancing culture of the international students and get the Canadians, as many as come out, to see that part of it,” said Beatty.
