Schedule of Future Events
justsalsa.com will be attending the some of the
future Congreso Bacardi de la Salsa events
so check back for photographs and MPEG movies which will be posted to this page.
These events are a real mixing point for people, and dancers from all over the world. The crew from
justsalsa.com has been covering these events for over a year.
We have seen the Congreso event turn from being a forum of the best of Mambo and Salsa into a launching pad for new and
up-comming talent. This may be due to the fact that the performers must pay to perform at the Congreso. Some dancers in
established dance groups are opossed to this. The overall effect is that the best talent is filtered out of the Congreso.
At the Congreso you will see many of the salsa dance styles represented, as well as meet people from all over the world -
joined together by their common love for Salsa Music and Dance. Salsa/Mambo enthusiast and world class musicians and dancers
celebrate thier salsa and play their music or demonstrate their best routines.
(Or if you are Roberto Roena or DJ Henry Knowles
you'll do both. The workshops, taught by professionals, "break-down" the different dance styles into understandable steps.
Make new friends and enjoy yourself at the Congreso Bacardi de la Salsa. We'll see you at the Congreso.The Congreso Bacardi
de la Salsa is produced by All Star Entertainment, Inc.
in conjunction with Bacardi, the makers of fine rums and spirits since 1862.The photographs are presented here for your
