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 Admiral Fitt studio 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 up front 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 dance team training will start soon and continue every Tuesday night.  For more information about the salsa team or to join our team, please contact us.
