Sewickley Academy’s annual International Dinner promoting awareness of different cultures and countries around the world is planned for Saturday, Jan. 26.
Dinner begins at 4:30 pm in the Middle and Senior School cafeteria. Cultural performances begin at 6 p.m. in Rea Auditorium.
The evening hosted by the Students Advocating for Equity (SAFE) Club and various cultural clubs is free and open to the public. Students, parents, supporters and community members are invited.
Students chose “Looking Back to Move Forward” as this year's theme. Here are some of the acts and clubs planned:
- Irish Culture Club—Performing a short skit about the history and cultural relevance of the often misunderstood Leprechaun.
- Indian Cultural Appreciation Club—Performing an electrifying dance that blends the Indian dances of Bhangra and Bollywood. Dancers will wear and showcase traditional Indian clothing.
- Spanish Culture Club—Presenting a slideshow that explores the cultures of seven Latin American countries.
- Chinese Culture Club—Performing Pao Ma Liu Liu, a traditional Chinese folk song.
- Jewish Culture Club—Performing the play Purim, one of the most joyous of all Jewish holidays. Purim chronicles the story of Esther’s courage to stand up to authority and put the lives of her people before her own.
