Spring 2019 Salsa Showcase Demo Videos

Are you ready to dance? If the answer is no, then don't try out for our upbeat, fast and fun salsa to Dejame Soñar by Tito Puente and Tony Vega. But the answer is YES! Let’s SALSA. Every group says they’ll have a lot of group bonding, but we’re actually going to have A LOT of activities: social dancing, pregames, dinners, lots of margaritas, and more. It’s going to be such a fun time!

We welcome dancers of all experience levels, so pick us! Get excited! We’ll be practicing about 2 hours twice a week. Not counting all that bonding. We can’t wait to welcome you into our dance family. J names not required.

Hello Salseros/as!! Chris and Louise here. We choreographed a ~feisty~ salsa to Alvaro Soler’s La Cintura, a very fun (and slightly fast) song. We are looking for 6 salseros/as who have a ton of enthusiasm regardless of experience/skill level. This dance will be full of lifts, dips and tricks! We’re looking to practice twice a week for 2 hours each practice. We really want to stress that we're looking for fun dancers with great attitudes. We’ll also be planning lots of bonding events for our group, so be excited for that :) Please come talk to us at tryouts if you have any questions, we’re excited to meet you all.

Hey guys! It’s Douglas and Brienne! We are very excited to be choreographing a fast, advanced salsa that will be lots of fun to learn and perform! Since the choreography will be very intricate, experienced salseros and salseras would be wonderful to have in our piece. Our plan is to have 3-4 hours of rehearsal a week and we are looking forward to spending some time outside of rehearsal bonding as well! We look forward to meeting you at auditions!

Hello lovely salsa friends! Are you looking to have the time of your life, learn some cool new stuff, and maybe fall in love (with chacha, an adorable puppy, or maybe even your future soulmate)? If you said yes to any of the above, or even if you didn’t, we’ve got the dance for you! We are choreographing an advanced chacha to a mix of “Heartbreak Hotel” by Sophia Ayana and “Smooth” by Santana.

We welcome dancers with any amount of experience as long as you come prepared with a positive attitude and willingness to learn. We are looking for individuals who are sassy, suave, sexy, and *smooth*. We will be practicing 3-4 hours a week and expect full participation in *mandatory* bonding events including potlucks, game nights, and plenty of wine (there will be either a puppy or food present at all events). Please reach out to us if you have any questions (Ali: 703.994.2537, Christian: 540.797.7530). We can’t wait to get started!

¡Hola future Bachateros y Bachateras! We are choreographing an intermediate bachata to Odio by Romeo Santos ft. Drake! This sexy song will turn up the heat and we are hoping for some dancers who can ignite that flame 🔥 we are planning to meet twice a week 1.5-2 hours each day. Get ready for some fire pregames and some blazing group bonding! We are so excited to see you at auditions and burn the dance floor at showcase!

Do you shed a tear during cheesy rom coms? 😥📺 Hard on the outside but soft on the inside? 🐢 Do you love to smile? 🐴 Then you are perfect for Viktoria and Fernando's bachata! We could not be more excited to choreograph "Bachata en Fukuoka" by the *legendary* Juan Luis Guerra. Bachata en Fukuoka is all about the universality of love and the infectious happiness that surrounds it, and we want you to be a part of it!

The dance is intermediate, and all experience levels are welcome. Expect practice around 3 hours per week. This dance has us HYPED, but we are more excited for all of the beautiful people we will get to meet. Get ready for some home-cooked meals, Catan, pregames, and lots of bachata-family love ❤

Showcase is our favorite part of the year, and we can’t wait for you to be a part of it.
