Multicultural Music & Performing Arts


Cultivating long lasting friendships, learning to dance, and experiencing cultures is what Descarga is about. At Descarga, we teach both students and Ames community members about an important aspect of Latin American culture - the dance. Come to our FREE weekly lessons to begin your journey into dances popular in Latin American Countries such as Salsa, Bachata, and Merengue. Beginner lessons are available to those just starting out, and intermediate lessons for those interested in improving their skills to the next level. Since we are a social dance group, there is no need to bring a partner to our events.
