Latin American Society (LatinSocYork)

  • Groupsicon


We are a group of students that work together to promote, share and enjoy the Latin American culture and traditions. Everyone aiming to have a good time, along with truly open and friendly people, is more than welcome to be part of the Latin American Society. 

We welcome everybody, so we love having people from all over the world. It is not necessary to come from a Latin-American country or to speak Spanish/Portuguese to participate. Apart from meeting people from all over the world and making new friends, becoming a member of the society will allow you to take part in many weekly or annual activities.

We organise Bachata and Salsa lessons, Spanish classes, nights out, Society BBQ, etc., and we participate in cultural and food festivals during the year. Join our Facebook community “Latin-American Society at The University of York” and check out our past activities and events.
