Salsa for sister city at Elks


BRUNSWICK – The Brunswick-Trinidad Sister City Association will host a Salsa Dance from 7:30 to 1 p.m. Friday, July 27, at the Brunswick Elks Lodge. Salsa dance instruction will be given from 7:30 to 8 by Laurence Miller of Gotta Dance 2. Salsa and a variety of other Latin music will be provided by DJ Charlie Crosby. This is a chem-free, family-oriented event.

The cost for the entire evening is $10 for adults; $5 for children or $25 for a family.

Proceeds will benefit the Dance of Two Cultures Mural, a collaborative public art project, led by Hallowell Artist Christopher Cart, which celebrates the cultures of Maine and of Cuba.

Brunswick has had a sister city relationship with Trinidad, Cuba, since 2003 and this event honors tradition of the weekly salsa dance, which brings together the whole family, from grandparents to children, as a way to celebrate their rich musical culture.

The mission of the Brunswick-Trinidad Sister City Association is to increase awareness and understanding of the people and culture in Brunswick’s sister city, Trinidad, Cuba.

BTSCA promotes creative and constructive nonpolitical interactions with the people of Trinidad. Beginning in August, work will begin on Dance of Two Cultures, an 8-foot by 40-foot mural that will be installed at 11 Pleasant St. in Brunswick.
