The MTSU Salsa Dance Club in Murfreesboro (on Facebook) will host a three-day "Salsa Congress" tomorrow through Sunday, April 9-11:
Events will include salsa workshops, salsa dancing, international banquet, music showcases, salsa dancing showcases, salsa competitions, and more. This event will be great in educating cultural diversity through dance as well as bridging the gap between the campus community and the local communities. We are also trying to get involved with the youth community to get the younger generation active by getting them excited about salsa dancing. Therefore, we will have youth salsa dance workshop, 18 years old and younger, within our congress. They will have the opportunity to learn 4 different Latin styles of dance as well as participate in a dance social so that they can put to use what they have just learned.
The MTSU Salsa Dance Club was founded in November 2008 by current President Dara Smith. We started with 10 members representing 5 countries and currently we are 25 members representing 15 countries.
