Yep. Full passes for me and my friend Smile
We're gonna PAAARRRRTY Very Happy
It'd better be a place nearby to catch a power nap in-between the sessions.

On a more serious logistical note: does anyone know if filming the combinations taught at the workshops is normally allowed?

I think you're allowed the record the combination at the end of the workshop. That's what we were allowed to do at the congress.

From my experience at the Toronto Salsa Congress, whether or not filming is allowed depend on the instructor. Some allowed you to tape them at the end of the workshop. Some announce absolutely no videotaping right at the beginning. I would suggest to bring a camera, even if the instructor do not allow taping, you can always get some friends to tape yourself at the end of the workshop to remind yourself what your learn.

We went to Salsa congress as well last October - Saturday night
I did enjoy the show, great performances
But the dancing part wasn't so exited for me
actually I didn't get a chance to dance
Maybe once or 2 times
Too many professionals on the floor. And even familiar faces wasn't so friendly Smile
This time i am thinking if it worth the money for me to pay
And yes, I am too shy to go and invite by myself

Anybody have any suggestions?
thanks

Hi Vorada,

I know what you mean about "too many professionals on the floor" and you don't get to dance very much. I actually enjoy watching the professional social dance when I am not dancing, sometime you can even pick up a few styling or move for yourself. And if you are not afraid to ask, you have the opportunity to dance with some amazing dancer.

For WSC, I only ever went for a Sat night so I won't be able to tell you if the dancing experience may be better for other nights. I believe there are quite a few TDS ppl planning on attending this event, I am sure you will see familiar faces there ... you can try 1 night and see if it is worth your $$ Smile

As for Toronto Salsa congress, give Sun night social dancing a try ... I often have the best dancing experience on a Sun night Smile
