RICHLAND, WA- The Tri-Cities Salsa Congress featured dance workshops in styles like Salsa, Kizomba, and Bachata.

Instructors came in from Los Angeles, San Francisco, and as far as Chicago.

Professional dancers gave performances Saturday night and organizers said they are happy to expand the salsa community in the Tri-Cities.

“To see people come out, dance, meet these other instructors, and learn from people from other cities, it's very rewarding because we do it for our community.  We want to help people learn how to dance,” said event organizer Emerald Laija.

The Tri-Cities Salsa Congress happens every October.  This year organizer estimated nearly a hundred more people took part in the event.
