English Language Fellow Moriah M. Kent noticed her students and faculty were passionate about both traditional and modern dancing, so she suggested that the English Department hold a school dance with a “Batik Nights” theme. The English Department invited everyone at Universitas PGRI Adi Buana Surabaya (UNIPA) and held the dance in conjunction with an exhibition of country diagrams, a project from the Cross Cultural Understanding class for 8th semester students.

When participants entered the dance room, they were greeted by a display of diagrams showcasing different countries and their characteristics. The scene was made festive by batik decorations, a large banner with “Batik Nights” strung up in the background, and sparkling lights. Faculty and students came together and danced a Bollywood routine, the Cha Cha, and learned some Square Dancing.  Overall, the event was a success, and participants left looking forward to future dances.
