Once a year, Quartz Hill High School Multicultural Club throws an assembly filled with music and dance celebrating multiple different cultures. This Thursday, located in the big gym, the annual Multicultural Assembly was held. Performances from the Spanish Club, Tinikling Team, and many more took place. Although they make it seem effortless, a great amount of work is put into making the Multicultural Assembly run smoothly while keeping it entertaining and educational for students.

The Spanish dance team, one of the many clubs involved in Multicultural, is featured in the assembly with a creative dance every year. Team member Jessica Jaramillo said, “I absolutely love doing the Multicultural Assembly. I’m in Cuban Mambo from Spanish Club, and the dance is so much fun to do. I couldn’t be happier to dance with such amazing people. Ever since I joined it, I have made new friendships that I couldn’t be happier to have in my life now. Being able to dance in front of everyone has really opened my eyes that I can do something like this and not be shy about it.”

Another member of the Spanish Club, Hannah Longbottom, said, “It’s fun to be able to look into other cultures through dances. We’ve been having practices throughout the past few weeks and I run through the routine on my own time as well. I think the Multicultural Assembly is definitely different culture-wise. I’m used to Hispanic/Latin culture being represented through the Cinco de Mayo Assembly I’ve been in, so seeing all of these dances from other places around the world is new to me, but it’s really interesting.”

Weeks of hard work and dedication make this assembly an important part of every school year at QHHS. Club members are rewarded by meeting new friends and having knowledge about different cultures around the world.

In past nineteen years, the assembly has shown traditional dances from Mexico, Africa, Spain, and even India. Very few schools have the privilege of holding a Multicultural Assembly. However, it is experiences like these that help students appreciate the cultures of others, along with their own.
