Breaking Down Cultural Barriers One Step at a Time: Zumba as a Communication Tool

February 28 | 7pm | Iron Horse Pub: 412 N Main Street

Jamie Gilbert | Communications Department

Ireland opens its borders to refugees from over 15 countries, 63% male and 37% females (28% are children). Communication Professor Jamie Gilbert will discuss how CWU students used music and dance as a communication tool to overcome cultural and language barriers when working with refugee families in Dublin, Ireland. Along with Gilbert’s discussion, CWU student Vicente Garcia will lead the audience in Zumba routines he choreographed and used while studying abroad with Professor Gilbert in Ireland last August.
