While tired from dancing till about 2:30am the previous night, I managed to drag myself out of bed and down to make the workshops. Started simple, I went to a beginner’s lesson with Ana Masacote. Later on I did a sexy workshop with Como Mango and also partook in a great Dominican-style bachata session!

Learning quite a bit, and regretting not getting up earlier to catch some of the morning workshops, we all went out to dinner and prepared for the Saturday night performances and dancing! All I can say is that if you’re just going to pick a night to check out the Congress; this is the night. Everyone was on their A-game and each performance just seemed to get better and better!

Needless to say, that by the time the dance floor was ready, everyone was taking the floor burning to try out the new moves and styling that they learned during the day. Resuming my ambassador-duties, I took to the floor and danced till about 4am! It was an amazing opportunity to dance with such varied and great dancers. The best part, was Orquesta de Menor a Mayor, a fantastic salsa band from Puerto Rico!

With an early morning practice only hours away, I knew it was time to get some sleep and rest up for yet another crazy day of salsa!
