Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The 2017 Las Vegas Salsa and Bachata Congress was amazing! We had 10 dancers from Indianapolis to travel and perform on one of the biggest stages and in a scene that bring renowned professional Latin dancers. We performed during the Friday evening and the afternoon Saturday shows.  Director Fallon trained 14hour with Tropical Gem to put on a show during the Sunday evening performances. The training and the camaraderie was memorable!
