San Francisco Salsa Congress 2009 Jack and Jill Contest Salsa Videos

Since this past weekend was the 8th annual San Francisco Salsa Congress, we thought we'd share some videos from everybody's favorite event: the Jack and Jill! In this event, dancers are paired up randomly with the goal of entertaining the crowd with the best dancing and funniest moves. In this round, especially the Masters, dancers typically imitate others who danced earlier or have some sort of joke within their dance. Last year, it was dancing while talking on cell phones - this year, the theme seems to be taking off shirts. Here are some of the favorites. Thanks to Kristina Quevedo Video Productions for taking the videos below. If you have any other videos from the 2009 San Francisco Salsa Congress - feel free to post them in our comments below. The salsa videos are after the break!...

Junior and Emily in 'Lord of the Spin' (Salsa Dance)

Ok, now these are the cream of the crop of dancers. These are the famous Junior and Emily salsa dancers. This brother and sister duo are the winners on 2 of the 4th anuual San Francisco International Salsa Competition in 2005. I saw them perform at the PS Congress as well, and they are also excellent instructors - and man, SHE CAN SPIN. Other than Serena from Majesty In Motion, and Magna from Mambotribe, I think Emily is probably the best spinner - hands down. Its one of those videos, where if you weren' t there to see them live, man, the video doesn't even do it justice - but a lot of fun to watch. There is nothing more attractive than a woman who can do multiple spins on a dime....
