It certainly has been a labor of love…since April 1999, we have organized over 30 Dance Weekends featuring some of the most talented dancers in the salsa world. From world champions, to salsa icons and legends, we have brought them to Pittsburgh so that our dance community could benefit from their vast knowledge and skills. Below you can find our brochures and publicity pieces from our past events (most recent listed first).
