This is a huge, incredible, highly anticipated social you won't want to miss out on, &
we generally always help coordinate a carpool down for this! Please join us at the next one!

♦ ♦ ♦ Congresses!!!
3-4 DAYS 
of nonstop dancing!!!
Held in large hotels, so all the action is literally just an elevator ride away from your bed, which is
important because there's precious little time for sleep! The action can start as early as 9am & you might
be up dancing as late as 6am... each day!

Workshops
Throughout the day there are usually 2-4 rooms in which workshops of all levels are held back to back, featuring some of the best in the region as well as phenomenal instructors from around the world!
Tip: bring a snack down with you & don't forget your camera; most instructors will let you film at the end.

Pool Parties
Meanwhile, over by the pool there's often a DJ & dancing, so be sure to bring your sun screen & bikinis!

Performances
After the workshops & pool party, you may or may not have time for dinner & a shower before the onslaught of stunning performances begin, which include both student teams & pros!

Socials
Once the performances are over, the real fun begins! Social dancing takes over at least two ballrooms
(usually a ballroom for Salsa & a separate ballroom for Bachata) & can last until 4, 5, or 6am!
(Which gives you just enough time for breakfast before the next day's workshops start. Whew!)
