Immerse Yourself in a New Culture
Cafecito Amigo December 10 – Celebrating Dance!
The next Cafecito Amigo program with Douglas County Libraries will be held on December 10 at the Philip S. Miller Branch Library at 100 S. Wilcox St. in Castle Rock.
Cafecito Amigo, which translates to “Friendly Coffee,” aims to bring together our community’s native English Speakers and English Language Learners who are interested in learning together and sharing our various cultures. Participants are encouraged to come to the event prepared to both listen to and/or share stories, food, knowledge, conversation and dance.
On December 10, participants who join will enjoy an inspiring performance of East Indian inspired dance by Neena Massey and traditional Kazakh dance by Alina and Saniya. Neena is a dancer/performance artist who “combines South Indian Dance, Mudras, Abbinaya, and vocals set in an electronic soundscape.” We are currently recruiting other volunteer performers to add to the program. Alina and Saniya are students from Kazakhstan who will be performing and teaching traditional dances from their home country.
Community members from all backgrounds who wish to also present at this program are encouraged to contact Tiffany Curtin or register as a performer on Volunteer Connect by December 1. Performances may be from 2-20 minutes. Storytellers who have a story with dance as a central theme are encouraged to volunteer!
Everyone is welcome to come to learn and enjoy food and conversation with new friends from various ethnic and linguistic backgrounds. Participants are also welcome to bring a dish to share if they wish or to simply enjoy!
Cafecito Amigo meets from 6:30-8:30 PM. Families are welcome at this event.
The concept of the Cafecito Amigo program aligns with the Core Values of Douglas County Libraries. At Douglas County Libraries we aim to create meaningful connections that engage the community and foster growth and trust as we explore and discover together.
The program is the creation of Spanish teacher Marta Pardo and Douglas County Libraries' Adult Literacy Specialist, Tiffany Curtin. Questions may be directed to Tiffany Curtin, 303-688-7646 or tcurtin @ dclibraries.org.
