 The 2nd Annual Salsa & Bachata Congress was held on February 24 to 28 at the Hilton Waikiki Beach Hotel. This year the organizers added two more popular Latin dances...Kizomba and Zouk.

I personally did not attend the event but my son Dean who loves to dance the Salsa and Bachata among other Latin dances was there for the various workshops and exhibition showcase. The following photos were submitted by Dean for this blog.
