Community ready to kick up heels at Latin dance night

THIS weekend it's all about fast feet and a sea of red.

Welcoming Intercultural Neighbours' Latin night is on again and promises a real community vibe.

WIN director Natalia Muszkat said the event was all about getting the whole community together to enjoy the South and Central American culture through music, performances and dance.

"The event has been organised by Welcoming Intercultural Neighbours Inc since 2010 yearly and it has become a classic of the Gladstone events circuit," she said.

"It's the main fundraising activity for WIN, a locally born not-for-profit organisation that services everyone in the Gladstone area.

"The event is a very friendly, semi-formal event in which people are encouraged to be involved, dance and interact with those in attendance," she said.

Ms Muszkat said the night would involve dance lessons, performances by Gladstone's Latino Fuego, Agnes Water's Nahlah Sahara Dancers, top Brisbane Latin band Cali Sabor and a DJ.

Drinks and food will be available for purchase during the event at very reasonable prices.

"Gladstone is a very multicultural community and there are hundreds of families that have a link to Central and South America in one way or another," she said.

The event will be held at the Gladstone PCYC in Yarroon St, Gladstone, from 7pm on Saturday.

Tickets cost $45 per person, and can be purchased here.
