On June 27, 2015 the Stone Center’s Summer Teacher Institute in Cuba participated in an interactive demonstration/performance on the roots of Afro Cuban rhythm and dance. Grammy award winning Afro Cuban rumba group, Los Muñequitos de Matanzas performed various dances. This program was sponsored in part by the National Union of Writers and Artists (UNEAC) of Cuba. Thanks to Cari Diez, Alfredo Prieto, and Olga Marta for arranging this unique opportunity for U.S. K-12 educators.
