The main act for this party is Vilma Diaz y la Sonora Dinamita, a cumbia music band popular here in San Diego. She and her band will sing classic hits like “Mi Cucu” and “Escandalo” among many other popular songs.

San Diego’s Latin dance scene has been expanding over the years and nothing is a better indicator of this growth than the 1st Annual World Latin Dance Cup. The event, hosted by Albert Torres Productions, is a great tribute to not just different styles of salsa dance (from Cuban style to Colombian style) but also other Latin dances like cumbia and bachata. Teams from all over the world will converge on San Diego to compete in dance categories ranging from amateur to pro teams. Those groups will vie for more than $50,000 worth of cash prizes and the chance to be dubbed #1 in their respective dance categories. It should be very exciting to watch, if not perform in the event for sure.
