The San Francisco Salsa Rueda Festival is consistently one of the best salsa events in the Bay Area. World class dancers teaching classes, interesting lecture, stunning dance performances and outstanding live music concerts in the evening. This year, the 9th anuual, was another well attended great event with dancers from all over the US and world.

Chini Perez originally from Cuba has been participating in the Rueda Festivals for a long time. This year besides teaching, he performed including a Chango dance which is shown in the two photos here.
Cuban dancer Yeni Molinet has been teaching and performing at the Rueda Festival for at least the last three years. She is a fantastic dancer and is always my favorite at the Festival.
