Salsamania Dance Company

AUDITIONS in June 4, 2017 at 2:30pm 

At Trillant Dance Studios 

130 Linden Street, Oakland, CA 

Salsamania Dance Company was founded in 2000 by John and Liz. The company is unique in many ways, but one distinction is that everyone is given a chance to learn if they have a passion for salsa and a positive attitude. The atmosphere at rehearsals is intense, yet relaxed, and encourages learning. Salsamania Dance Company members are trained not just to perform routines, but also to develop skills and techniques that they can carry onto the social dance floor. John and Liz encourage all members to utilize the patterns and shines they teach in clubs, at socials or anytime a member goes dancing.

The dance company is divided into different groups of varying skill levels:

  • Salsamania (professional team)
  • Salsamania y Su Nueva Dimension (mixed level pro-am team)
  • Salsa Sin Limite (amateur On1 team)
  • Lady Mambo (Professional ladies footwork team)
  • Lady Stilo (amateur ladies footwork team)
  • Salsamania On 1 Student Team  

  • Salsamania ON 2 Student Team 
  • On 2 Training Team
