We would like to give a big thanks to Rosita Ragin and Saladeen Alamin for their great work in producing the Chicago International Salsa Congress this past weekend. It was a well organized weekend with great dancers from around the country and some excellent workshops.
The congress was a wonderful opportunity to catch up with old friends and internationally known instructors, like Sekou McMiller who was back in his home town both teaching and performing.
This weekend also marked the first time that Inspiración placed choreography on a local youth group for a salsa congress. Inspiración dancers Kevin Little and Olena Javorska did an excellent job preparing the Lane Tech Colombian Club to perform at the event. We are proud of both the first-rate job that Kevin and Olena did with their young group of dancers and of the outstanding performance by the new team. It was a good weekend all around and we're looking forward to participating more next year!
