Night of dancing comes to NMU


On Nov. 16, Northern will host Orquesto Veneno, a Latin music group from Milwaukee, as part of Noche de Baile, which translates into “a night of dancing.” The event is the culmination of Latin Culture Week. The group came to Northern for a similar event last semester and was invited back because they were well-received, said Annie Bruce, senior zoology major and co-president of the Latin Dance Club. Noche de Baile will be a night of salsa dancing and will feature a new, bigger dance floor than in previous years, Bruce said. There will be people from the Latin Dance Club on hand to teach those who don’t already know how to salsa dance, Bruce said. There will also be free authentic Latin food and a prize giveaway during the band’s intermission. The prizes are donated from the NMU Bookstore, TCF Bank and Border Grill. The event is sponsored by the Latin Dance Club, the Spanish Club and the Latin American Student Organization. Noche de Baile will take place from 7:30 -11:30 p.m. in the Great Lakes Rooms of the University Center. The event is free of charge for students and $2 for the general public.
