On December 1, Sabrosura presented their 2012 fall show, “Pa’ La Calle.” Yale’s Latin dance group filled the Off-Broadway Theater to maximum capacity and treated their audiences to a delightful night of hip-shaking.

The sequence of dances transported the spectators to different areas of Latin America, giving the audience a taste of everything from Caribbean merengue to Brazilian samba (with some flamenco, paso doble, salsa and bachata thrown into the mix). Each one of the dances performed was the result of months of rehearsing and choreographing, and the talented dancers evidently had a blast putting on an incredible show. Excellent job, Sabro!

This past Friday February 10th, LASO and Sabrosura hosted the bimonthly cena a la seis at La Casa Cultural. The dinner had a great turn out with about sixty undergraduate students and two graduate students coming together to enjoy lomos saltado. Lomos Saltado is a Peruvian entree that has Asian influences (chifa) consisting of strips of sirloin marinated in vinegar, soy sauce and spices, then stir fried with red onions, parsley and tomatoes. Served traditionally over white rice with french fries. After dinner, we all had tons of fun playing musical chairs. One student facetiously remarked, “This is where true personalities really come out!”

With great people and amazing Latin cuisine, there is no reason not to attend! Come join the entire La Casa family next Friday February 24th for a delicious dinner hosted by Oye and Cause. Arrive promptly at 6 to ensure you get your portion of the scrumptious meal ordered from local restaurants! Please RSVP to lacasacultural@gmail.com if you plan to attend.
