Each year in Spring, Kingsway students from various ethnicities come together to celebrate different cultures around the world in the Multicultural Assembly, put on by Kingsway’s World Cultures Club. This year’s assembly featured Bollywood dance, Latin dance, hip hop dance, and various singing performances. Poetry was also read by two students. 

The first performance was a Bollywood dance, or a type of Indian dance based on Bollywood movies—an industry similar to Hollywood. Next was an Asian fan dance, which originated in China and is performed to pass down traditions and stories throughout generations. 

Senior Malin Cortright then sang a Swedish song based on a tradition in Sweden. This was followed by another Bollywood song and dance performed by Mahi Mopal.

The assembly also featured a Huapango dance, a Mexico Folklorico dance and a Cumbia dance. Next, students Gabrielle Kiner and Logan Lyons read two poems from Kingsway’s Shades club. This was followed by a choir performance by Kingsway’s Dragon Singers. 

The assembly closed out with a Reggaeton dance introduced by Felicia Rivera Reggaeton is a modern style of Latin dance that combines reggae, hip hop, and Latin music, among other styles.
