My salsa pals place 3rd in World Salsa Open in Puerto Rico

How unbelievably excited I am for my salsa pals (and teachers) Azucena & Carlos and their Jazzy Dance Company!! They remain a true inspiration - and it's been a glorious treat for me to become involved in their world first as a student, then strategic media advisor, and now friend.

Dear Friends and Salseros of Austin,

I am beyond excited to share with you this past weekend's events. After 9 days of beach and sunny days, we arrived yesterday from San Juan with tired bodies but a very happy spirit ! As a dance team, we hadn't really considered competing in the World Salsa Open in Puerto Rico. But destiny had something else in store for us.

At the beginning of June, we got invited by Jayson Molina to compete in the team division after he had seen our Zip zap routine on video. And in spite of the fact that we hadn't really planned to make that expensive trip, we decide purely on faith that it'd be worth a try.
