Portland Salsa Bachata Congress

  • This location is shown only to members

Every year, some of the best salsa and bachata dancers in the world come here and showcase their dancing talents and perform for the crowd. Performances are usually from 9:45pm - 11pm.

If you want to skip the performances and just attend the dancing, the social dancing starts right after the performances at 11pm. The dancing social is a great opportunity for those wanting to dance one on one with some of the best salsa and bachata dancers in the world and local Oregonian salsa pro-amateurs too.

There is a free salsa lesson at 9pm, so if you're new and never done salsa before, I would highly suggest taking it. I would be more than happy to give some friendly tips and pointers during the salsa social if anyone wants to learn a few moves or work on some things that one has trouble on. Just ask me during the salsa social and I can help you out. I don't usually say no when asked to dance, so please feel free ask me whenevers during the social.

Although the event starts at 9pm, I will be hanging out at the hotel lobby from 8:30pm to 9pm if anyone wants to meet up at the Salsa Congress event. Look for the Meetup sign. After 9pm, you'll most likely see me at the event.

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
