Friday was cold, the roads were partially still slippery after the Thursday snow storm, but that didn't stop true Salsaholics from going out to dance.

In Cincinnati, we had a Fundraiser for ballet tech cincinnati in their new headquarters on Montgomery road. The facility is awesome, with huge dance floor, and a balcony above the dance floor. There is still a work needed to be done, but that's why we had the Fundraiser for them.

Then in Dayton, we had our weekly "Friday Latin Night @ Cream Nite Club". Also there, the weather didn't stop the true Salsaholics from coming and having fun on the dance floor!
