Sewickley Academy’s International Dinner will take place on Saturday, January 26, 2013. Dinner begins at 4:30 pm in the Middle/Senior School cafeteria, and performances begin in Rea Auditorium at 6 pm.
This annual event promotes awareness about different cultures and countries around the world. The Students Advocating for Equity (SAFE) Club and various cultural clubs will host this evening of cultural performances and food for their fellow students, parents, supporters, and members of the community.
Students planning this year’s International Dinner chose “Looking Back to Move Forward” as the theme. Below are just a few of the clubs and acts on the agenda for the evening:
Irish Culture Club—Presidents Aubrey Gedeon ’13 and Andrew Nassar ’14 and fellow club members will perform a short skit about the history and cultural relevance of the often misunderstood Leprechaun.
Indian Cultural Appreciation Club—Presidents Sharran Chakravorty ’13 and Rishin Doshi ’13 and their fellow club members will perform an electrifying dance that blends the Indian dances of Bhangra and Bollywood. The dancers will wear and showcase traditional Indian clothing.
Spanish Culture Club—Presidents Jake Mulholland ’13 and Nehemiah Norris ’13 and fellow club members will present a slideshow that explores the cultures of seven Latin American countries.
Chinese Culture Club—Presidents Janelle Sands ’15 and Adele Yang ’15 and fellow club members will perform Pao Ma Liu Liu, a traditional Chinese folk song. Karen Chen ’16 is the lead vocalist and the other students will perform the traditional dance for the piece.
Jewish Culture Club—Presidents Amanda McLeod ’14 and Isabelle Werner ’13 and fellow club members will perform a play entitled “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.
The International Dinner is free and open to the public.
