Due to circumstances beyond our control or our featured artists, we’ve had to make the decision today to not bring RODRIGO & SELENE from Mexico. We’re sad we can’t bring this brilliant couple to NZ as many of you were looking forward to seeing them, and they were equally looking forward to visiting our shores for the first time, however Selene recently had her passport stolen and had been waiting for that and her visa to come through (hence our delay putting up the timetable), but this is still some weeks away and thus getting way too close to Congress for comfort.. heck it’s 4 weeks today!!

BUT.. the GOOD news is we are EXCITED to announce that they will be replaced by the AMAZING 8x National & International Salsa Dance Champions – JUNIOR & EMILY from the USA!!!

As this is all hot off the press please bear with us while we update the website info including the workshops and immersion course info. Meanwhile check out their website for yourself:



The Comfort Hotel is now SOLD OUT of Twin Rooms! If you havent booked your room yet do it now as both Hotels usually sell out, especially after they release the rooms back to the general public from May 1.

The Thursday Warm-up & Welcome Party venue has changed and will now be held at The Grand instead of Bodega. This new bar has lots more room for dancing and is still a short walk from the official Hotel. See the Shows & Party page for more details.

Saturday night’s big Grand Salsa Ball has a theme – BLING IT ON! As the name suggests its time to bring out the gold chains, diamantes, big rings and $2 shop  glam. Free 2015 Congress Pass for the most creative and flashiest dresser!
