(Acapulco, AN 10 December) The sixth annual Acapulco “Salsa and Bachata” Congress opens today and runs through Sunday with events promoting Latin dance rhythms. Award-winning dance teams will perform, like Gabriela Bernal and Victor Burgos, who have won Salsa competitions in the United States. Legendary producers of Salsa rhythms, like Adalberto Santiago and Albert Torres, will be present. Torres was the choreographer of Vanessa Williams in the movie, Dance with Me and producer of World Latin Dance Cup. According to dancer Victor Burgos, the purpose of this international dance event is to stimulate and promote Latin dancing throughout Mexico. Latin dance rhythms attract international tourism, and not just from Latin America or the Caribbean, but mainly from the US and Canada. Over 70 companies and 200 dancers will be involved with activities at the congress, according to organizers. The congress is being hosted in the Grand Hotel Acapulco.
