¡Primer Día Internacional del 2017!
Published: July 11, 2017
Last Friday, the many aldeas of Concordia Language Villages joined together to celebrate our first Día Internacional of the verano! Through presentations of artes y bailes, playing juegos, and enjoying new comida, we all shared experiences from cultures throughout the world.
After a picnic at the Norwegian village, Skogfjorden, we walked to the German village,Waldsee, in a desfile of villages that ended in our I-day dance. Later in the day, representatives from each aldea participated in Cumbre, or Model U.N., to represent a specific nation that speaks their target language. We also had a showcase of Ritmo, Bailes Modernos y Bailes Folclóricos where the villagers showed some great moves.
Another attraction for all was our Copa Mundial in which the aldeas competed in a tournament of fútbol. Aldeanos from ELdB played hard all day and became the campeones de la Copa Mundial this year!
We finished a day filled with exciting activities with a programa de noche where every aldea created a presentation to match our I-Day theme, "What's your story?" We showed El Lago del Bosque Bemidji's history through a presentation of antique photographs and a mezcla of some of our favorite modern dances.
