This Saturday, the mad, hot ballroom events will include salsa cardio workshops and salsa boot camps from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; then cap off the day with a party featuring dance showcases and live bands from 8 p.m. to 3 a.m. Salsa enthusiasts from all over the world will descend on Miami for this dance vacation weekend, but as a footloose local, you get to choose which events to attend (prices range from $15 to $100) without having to splurge on a hotel room. Can you hear the distant beat of the conga drum? We thought so. Tickets are available at miamisalsacongress.com or the events registration desk.
