BOOK ONE OF OUR POPULAR:

  • SALSA SUPPERS OR LATIN LUNCH SERIES

  • THE PERFECT EVENT WHICH INCORPORATES MUSIC AND DANCE DURING YOUR DINNER SERVICE

Teaching of the contributions of Hispanic Americans, and learning about the cultures from which they come, will be the focal point of many classroom activities and discussions in the weeks ahead as students across the United States recognize Hispanic Heritage Month -- September 15 to October 15.

During Hispanic Heritage Month, we reflect on the history of the people who were part of this land long before the birth of the United States. Hispanics were among the earliest European settlers in the New World, and Hispanics as a people - share a rich history and great diversity. Hispanic Americans have roots in Europe, Africa and South and Central America, and Spain. This diversity has brought variety and richness to the mosaic that is America and has strengthened our national character with invaluable perspective, experience, and values.

Many Hispanic Americans trace their roots to the cultures of the indigenous peoples of the Americas -- including the Arawaks (Puerto Rico), the Aztecs (Mexico), the Incas (South America), the Maya (Central America), and the Tainos (Cuba). Others trace their roots to the Spanish explorers, who in the 1400s set out to find an easier and less costly way to trade with the Indies.

Grupo Fantasia
A panoply of Latin/Caribbean styles.


Not merely a band but also a mobile seminar on Latin and Caribbean music, Grupo Fantasia is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalist Angel Wagner. A Dominican native who began his musical career banging on a cheese grater with a fork, Wagner has since mastered more than 30 different instruments. With Grupo Fantasia, Wagner and his cohorts demonstrate mastery of Latin music in a great many styles: merengue, salsa, Latin jazz, cumbia, bachata and vallenato are but a few. You may also spot Mr. Wagner heading a mariachi quartet or a calypso/soca trio. And, as if that wasn't enough, Mr. Wagner also heads the Angel Wagner Musical Workshop, which gives students hands-on lessons in the sounds of the Caribbean and Latin America. Check the Fantasia website for more information, and learn as you dance.
