———————–

Some things to keep in mind. We are not looking for choreography. We are looking for authenticity, connection with your partner, connection with the music. It does not matter what style you dance, The judges have been advised not to pick one particular style, just pick the couples they think look best on the floor!  Just have a good time and  everything will be awesome!

If you have questions please call the Salsa Hotline at 888-707-5051 – Good Luck!
