Which Salsa Congresses Or Major Events Do You Plan To Attend in 2011?


Staff member
It's nearly the end of 2009 and time to start planing your salsa travels for the new year... we had a thread for 2009, so I thought I'd start a new one for 2010.

Which events are on your list? :)
(Or to put it another way, where will I be able to dance with you? :lol:)
Chicago Intl. Salsa Congress Feb 11-14
Teaching, performing & organizing the closing act of the opening night.

Salsaruedafestival San Francisco Feb 18-21 (I am there Feb 19-21)

Paris, France - April/May
London - From Paris - April/May
Münster, Germany - April 17
Luxembourg, May 17ish
DC Congress - June 18-20
Orlando Congress - July 2-4
Rio De Janeiro, Brasil - July 12

That's all I can think of for now. See you guys on the dance floor!
Boston - love it.
Connecticut (prob)
Rochester (maybe).
NJ Congress (prob)
DC - my favourite.
DC bachata congress if it happens again this year
New York
Philly Salsa Fest (not to be confused with the "congress" - totally different)
Not sure what else is gonna pop up....
Palm springs tomorrow :)
DC congress in June
DC bachata congress in August?
Will probably make it again to NYC in September
If I'm really lucky, Toronto in October
Still unsure of where to go in March, fingers crossed for somewhere in Europe (I ain't going to Vancouver, that's for sure :) )

Don't forget to put approximate dates next to your events people, so others can use this as a reference
Houston Salsa Congress (Jan 14th-17th)
Texas Salsa Congress (mid-March)

I expect to be attending and performing at both of those Congresses. If there's another big SalsaForums meetup at the 2010 New York Congress, then I'll seriously consider that one. I might also consider one of the Congresses in the U.S. with heavy Casino/Rueda dancing, like the San Francisco/Bay Area Salsa Rueda Festival (February 2010 timing will be very difficult for me, though) or Miami's Salsa Rueda Congress (I haven't seen official dates for 2010, but it happened during November in 2009).

One of these years I'll also have to attend the Congress in Los Angeles....
I'm attending the Houston Salsa Congress in January, Bachata Dallas Congress in February, Hawaii Salsa Congress (to teach) in February, Texas Salsa Congress in March, Vegas Salsa Congress in July, Puerto Rico Congress in end of July, New York Congress in September and San Francisco in November.
This year I will atend a lot off congresses in Europe

Amsterdam (5-6-7 February)
Zurich (26 - 28 February)
Antwerp (2 - 4 April)
Munster (16 - 18 April)
Limburg (6 - 9 May)
Hamburg (16. - 18. July)

I wil DJ'ng at Summersalsa Vianen (27 - 29 August)

And ofcource my own festival:

8 & 9 october Salsa Festival Twente (Holland)
Seattle Salsa Congress (November)

Possibly Vancouver (BC) and/or Portland, depending largely on the economy :)

The LA and San Francisco congresses sound cool, but I doubt that I'll make it in 2010.
Thinking about Palm Springs this summer. It's only $100 right now. (Which is pretty deceptive, since the airfare and hotel totally dwarf the cost of the pass!)
I'll start with
Frankfurt (February 12th-14th) and
Candela Salsa Festival Karlsruhe (March 25th-28th)
Salsa Festival Münster (April 16th-18th)

As for the rest of the year I haven't made plans yet, I'm almost sure I'm gonna make it to Hamburg (July 16th-18th) and Berlin (October 1st-3rd), the rest depends on how everything works out with my thesis and whatever comes next.
