Saturday night OYE took advantage of the open space on the second level of its new office to host a karaoke and dance night for OYE scholars, families, and friends. This event was the culmination of OYE's 6th anniversary. As the sun set over El Progreso and the evening progressed, attendees enjoyed refreshments offered by the scholars in between dances and karaoke performances. A mixture of Latin music and popular American songs pulsed over the dance floor late into the evening while the strobe light kept time. The audience was treated to some karaoke performances by talented locals and the group of volunteers under the direction of Michael Solis, who sang while dancers from OYE's volunteer program performed a dance routine to Lady Gaga's hit song “Born this Way." The audience went wild for the performance and requested a second one, which didn't take place until the next day when the group performed live on Teleprogreso.
