On July 22-25, Patrick and I attended the 1st annual AK Salsa Festival held right here in Anchorage, AK. On Friday and Saturday nights, at the Captain Cook Hotel, we performed an Argentine Tango that we choreographed together for this event. It went over exceptionally well!!! Sunday night raffle prizes were given away at Platinum Jaxx. Patrick and I won a full pass to the Palm Springs Salsa Mambo New Years Eve Festival in Palm Springs, CA (4 days of intense workshops: 10am-midnight, with open dancing from midnight till 4am). One of the professional dance instructors, Edie the Salsa Freak (yes, this is her performance name), was one of the instructors at our festival and she is the creator and cosponsor of this festival in Palm Springs. She had positive feedback on our dance routine and invited us to perform our piece in Palm Springs while we're down there. How exciting!!!! We will be making some minor adjustments to the piece (nothing choreography wise, just minor things like costuming or use of props).
We will be teaching Beginning/Intermediate Salsa and hosting the dance as a fundraiser to help us represent AK performing at this upcoming festival. Half of the proceeds will also go to the Anchorage Senior Activity Center to support their activities for the community.
Wish us luck and help us promote the event.
