A Taste of F&F Dance Company (vids)

For any of my readers who were curious about this whole ‘dance’ side of my life, here are vids from our two performances at the 2013 DC Bachata Congress. Although I always end up having a blast performing on stage, we usually don’t get to do all our shows with the full pro team line-up, ...

Saleya Latin Night by F&F Dance Company (NYC)
