Carnaval ‘ … And We’re Live!’

Students perform the traditional Bolivian dance Caporales during “Carnaval,” a yearly cultural show organized by the Association of Latin American Students at Washington University in St. Louis. More than 130 students participated in skits, dances and musical acts to highlight the beauty, creativity and richness of Latin American culture. The sold-out shows, held March 30 and 31 in Edison Theatre on the Danforth Campus, featured samba, salsa and the tango, among other dances. Each year, the students also educate the public on an issue pertinent to the Latino community through a skit. This year’s theme “ … And We’re Live!” explored issues of racism within the Latino community. (Credit: Kevin Lowder)
