Salsa Events in North America 2013

Checking out the local dance scene is the easiest way to enjoy social dancing. However, this can get a little boring over time or maybe there isn’t much of a dance community where you live. Either way, if you are in need of a change in your dance experience, want some additional instruction, are looking to hear some great live music or just want an excuse to get out of town checking out a dance congress somewhere else in the world may be just what you need.  And surprisingly, or maybe not, there are several great Latin dance events happening in North America not to mention all over the world. Below is a list of the ones I am currently aware of with a few details on each.  Keep watching the Salsaddiction Google calendar as I will be updating it with these events and any others I learn about.
