The 11th Latin dance competition was held on Monday at the Music Center at Strathmore in Bethesda.
After a two-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the non-profit organization After School Dance Fund brought back its annual dance competition, that featured six Montgomery County high schools.
The event was attended by Montgomery County council members, school leaders, and Congressman Jamie Raskin received a special award for public service, courage and tenacity.
Here are some tweets from the event:
