2008 Los Angeles Salsa Congress in May!

It is back again - and coming real soon. The 10th Annual Los Angeles Salsa Congress (previously called the West Coast Salsa Congress). Just a quick heads-up to everyone who is planning to go - tickets are selling fast and hotel is almost booked. This year they are bringing back one of my favorite bands: The New Swing Sextet (rumor has it they have a new album coming out). They are also bringing the great Cheo Feliciano to help us groove to what will be an amazing night of social dancing on that Saturday night. If you have never been to a salsa congress before, I HIGHLY encourage you to attend one - it is an unforgettable experience, no matter your current salsa skill level....




A Weekend Salsa Dancing : The West Coast Salsa Festival

A Weekend Salsa Dancing : The West Coast Salsa Festival

After taking the rest of the video and editing it, I'm happy to start off a new series (that hopefully will continue). I had watched a DVD called On2005 A Year in Mamboland, and I decided to use it as inspiration on how to show all the nice video clips of social dancing at the 2007 West Coast Salsa Congress in Los Angeles California. I title this series: A Weekend in Salsa. I like the name because that usually when most of us go out for salsa during the week. Additionally, that is when most of the salsa congress events occur. Now, I have no real background in directing/production/editing so I did my best for my first shot. This is mainly for you guys to enjoy the dancing that goes on a salsa congresses during the night events. Again, please enjoy!...
