Waking up only hours after going to bed, the helper performance team assembled in the ballroom. Surrounded by the many other student teams, we forged through our early-morning haze and put the final touches on our routine. Satisfied that we were ready, we all went our ways and gathered only a few hours later to prep for the final part of our weekend, the student showcase!

Extra nervous and quite excited it was time for the TDS team to take flight and we had a great time doing our salsa routine! Everything seemed to go in slow motion yet was over before you knew it! With big sighs and all screamed-out from cheering for the other student teams; we bid our farewells and thus concluded my Congress weekend of madness!

While I wish I could’ve attended the Sunday night showcase; my body was completely exhausted and I spent the rest of the weekend on the couch!

A fantastic weekend and a wonderful time, I highly recommend checking it out next year, if you haven’t yet been!

Till then,
Stay Shining Salseros!
