The Friends sponsored a festive demonstration of Salsa-Mambo presented by the talented dancers of the Salsabor Tropical Dance studio. More than 60 participants gathered for food, fun, and to enjoy dancing to the rhythmic beats of this cultural and social dance, Salsa-Mambo. A great time was shared by all!
