Salsa Heats-Up Chicago

Chicago’s hottest wintertime tradition is back February 16-19, 2012 as the Chicago International Salsa Congress merges world-class dancers, musicians, performers and dance instructors for four sizzling, non-stop days and nights of top Latin, Afro-Caribbean and Cuban-fused dance and music.

Now in its 11th year, and with a dizzying array of programming organized by founders Chicagoans Rosita and Saladeen Alamden, the event draws well over 2,500 each day. From daily classes and workshops from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. ranging from beginners to intermediate and advanced instruction, to nightly dance showcases by top-ranked dance pros, followed by nightly concerts by renowned Latin music artists featuring open dancing, the beat remains red-hot and sultry long into the night.

This 4-day Salsa immersion extravaganza begins 8:30 p.m. Thursday February 16 and continues through Sunday evening, February 19 at the Westin O’Hare, 6100 West River Road, Rosemont, Illinois. Admission varies and ranges from a Dance Showcase/Concert Package at $25, a 1-day pass to all Dance Workshops (classes run 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) for $99, to a complete 4 Day/3 Night all inclusive plan at $329.
