Kent State’s Latin American fraternity, Phi Iota Alpha, will host their biggest event of the semester, Dancing With the Phiotas, Tuesday.

Fraternity members will be teaching students two popular styles of Latino dance, merengue and bachata, in room 204 of the Student Center at 7p.m. Tuesday.

“It’s something new,” said Osmel Morales, president of the fraternity. “We’re trying to teach people about Latino culture.”

Phi Iota Alpha began on campus last semester, and Morales said the fraternity will be hosting other events that address controversial topics in an attempt to unite the Latin American community.
