    Houston Salsa Dancers Inc.
    The Houston Salsa Dancers Inc. is a non-profit organization that has developed several programs that continues to teach inner city students how to dance. It's main purpose is not only to expose students to different Latin communities, cultures, and heritage through dance, but also to facilitate a positive body image and increased self esteem. An integral part our mission is to offer yearly scholarships to students that are involved in the Houston salsa dance community. In the year 2000, the Houston Salsa Congress began as the first of its kind in the State of Texas. This congress now continues a rich tradition with the fifth installment in a series that highlights the beauty, creativity, and precision of Latin dance.
