Flamenco is one of the best known Spanish dances. But it's not just the dance: it is the music, the dresses..."Sol y Flamenco" performed during the International Week in 2012 and in 2013.
La Feria is an event organised by the Spanish Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong. Some of our students volunteered to help fun as stewards and stewardesses for the event.
The Spanish speaking cinema industry is very strong, with some great films that we screen for all PolyU students and staff.
There are lots of Spanish and Latin American restaurants in Hong Kong!
Latin American Music
You have probably heard of Salsa and Mambo and Tango... but there is so much more. Music is the soul of Latin America. In 2012 and 2013 we had performances by the Latin Trio at PolyU.
La "Cuarentuna" is a non-professional musical group from the city of Valencia, they follow a centuries old tradition (and dress accordingly) started by the students of the Law Faculty of the University of Valencia.
Every semester we invite Spanish speaking people to talk to students on all sorts of topics: phonetics, business, cultural differences, particular countries...
Not that our staff are great cooks... but our students do better!
