What is the
Latin Motion Dance Company all about?
Latin Motion is a dance company dedicated to the advancement of Salsa
and Latin dance through the training of advanced students and the
performance of Salsa and other Latin dances.
How do I join?
Everyone who joins has to "try out" or audition for the Company (team).
Recommendations from friends are welcome and strongly considered. You
do not need a partner, but of course you are welcome to join with one.
Upon completing a successful try out/audition you will be given an
offer to join a certain level of the team. There are three different
levels for members of the group:
Advanced Student Level
(Non-performing): This level is for those who want to
improve their skill, become advanced dancers and work toward mastery of
Salsa and other Latin Dances. No member is required to perform.
Student Group Performer Level:
This level is for those who want to improve their skill, become
advanced dancers and work toward mastery of Salsa and other Latin
Dances. In addition, these students will be afforded the opportunity to

fairs, and other events).
