You have to already be an intermediate/advanced salsa dancer. Other dance background are a plus. Performing experience is not required but is a plus. Tons of salsa social dancing experience is also a huge plus.

How can I audition to become a performer?

To audition, you would need to contact Silvia to schedule your audition. During the audition, you will be asked to dance free style partner dancing so we can see that you can lead/follow. We’ll be watching your styling and sense for rhythm. You will also memorize a short footwork pattern and demonstrate that you are able to learn and perform footwork.
