Second Floor Ballroom, Iowa Memorial Union, UI Campus
$10 to first 100 tickets, $15 after that

Afro-Cuban Drum & Dance Ensemble
North Hall, UI Campus
$12 Adults, $6 UI Students & Youth

This weekend is the one to start dreaming of warmer places by taking in the grooves of a tropical culture. The Afro-Cuban Drum & Dance Ensemble makes Iowa a little livelier with hip-shakin’ and foot-stompin’. It’ll put a smile on your face and make you forget the weather is crap outside. Boooooo–get out of the cold and into North Hall!
