An event this weekend combines words we rarely hear together: Dance for Democracy. That should create a lot of interest to entice local high school and college students age 18 and over to join in this event at 8 p.m. Saturday night, Feb. 13, at Mambo's Night Club 3652 S. Virginia Street (near the Atlantis Resort Casino). 

The event is intended to show that the political process can be fun and to engage more young people and Latinos in the political process with the Nevada caucuses just a week away.

The event is the first of three to be organized this semester by Noticiero Movil (Mobile Newsroom), and it's in partnership with the national group Voto Latino. Noticiero Movil is the current student project of the Nevada Media Alliance, a project of the Reynolds School of Journalism with KUNR and other local media partners.

Media Alliance Coordinator Vanessa Vancour discussed the project and the event with Reynolds School of Journalism Dean Al Stavitsky on KUNR's Beyond the Headlines (air date 2-12-16; interviewed by David Stipech).

The event is free but advance tickets are required. Click here.
