From Kathy Reyes of Bachata Nightz:
Albert Torres, a man who inspired so many of us and gave hope to those that were hopeless, was taken to the hospital on April 28th, 2017 suffering from a stroke and kidney infection. Unfortunately his kidney infection has progressed and he is now in the ICU. His family and our dance community are saddened to know of his condition, and we ask that you support this event and include Albert in your prayers. If you are unable to attend, you can send your donation via Paypal or Venmo to @kathyreyesdance, titled, "DONATION FOR ALBERT TORRES".
