Student Performance Team
The SalsaNow Performance Team is comprised of students from our Salsa classes. Team practices and performances provide an opportunity for students to take their dancing to a higher level and to strengthen the camaraderie among students. Performances also provide a platform for SalsaNow to showcase material that is taught in class and to demonstrate how much fun it is to be a part of SalsaNow. We are very proud of all of our students.
The student performance team is relatively informal, with dancers from all walks of life, of varied ages and experiences. The teams have trained for a professionally choreographed routine under the direction of SalsaNow's Niss and Alex. Practices are held weekly at The Promenade on Tuesdays at 9 PM. The team performs at various events and club demonstrations during the year as opportunities arise and schedules allow.
We welcome new members to join the next team. Qualified dancers should have a full grasp of salsa basics at an intermediate level, the ability to commit time to rehearsals, and most importantly, enthusiasm! Team experience is an excellent way to improve your dancing and meet lots of equally keen dancers. The choreography is designed specifically for this team with the abilities of the team members in mind, and no matter your prior experience, you will have a lot of fun as part of a close knit group, not to mention the thrill of entertaining the crowds. There is a fee collected upfront for one month at a time based on how many hours are spent on training, and the dancers will need to purchase their own costumes (minimal cost).
New 2012 dance team training started on December 4th and continues every Tuesday night. For more information about the salsa team or to join our next team, please contact us. The SalsaNow Performance team is currently available for performance bookings and fundraisers.

DC Hustle Flash Mob - Baltimore Represented
The first ever Hustle Flash Mob debuted in Washington, DC on April 9th, 2011 during the annual Cherry Blossom Festival. Televised locally and made national news, the mob was a success in every way. Flash Mob director Erica Smith teamed up with Joyce Szili to co-choreograph the Official Hustle Flash Mob danced to Lady Gaga's popular hit song, “Just Dance”. Niss and Alex Albaig taught the hustle choreography in Baltimore and had a great turnout of hustlers joining the DC mobsters for the flash mob.
For more information about how you can participate in future Hustle Flash Mobs, please contact us and visit the DC Hustle Flash Mob Facebook page. You can also watch a breakdown of the choreography on YouTube.
Many Thanks to Erica Smith and all who participated in DC's First Ever Hustle Flash Mob! Great Job!
