Salsa Team Audition!

AUDITIONS for the 2022/23 SALSA TEAM WILL TAKE PLACE on THURSDAY the 19th of JANUARY 2023 (19:30 till 21:30).

  • Do you want to be professionally trained by some of the best teachers and performers in the UK?
  • Do you want to be invited to Oxford College Balls and perform unique routines?

We are happy to announce that the Oxford Salsa and Bachata Society is seeking new members for the Salsa Team 2022/2023! Latin dancers of improver/intermediate level and above are welcome to audition for the team and we are looking for motivation, commitment, and good team spirit! The team will work on a fast-paced routine with footwork, partner work, and lifts. The main performance we will be working towards is the annual Oxford Salsa Ball (Saturday, the 6th of May 2023), but there will also be the chance to perform at many other parties and events in the UK (or even abroad!) in the surrounding weeks and months.

The team will be coached by our teachers. They have years of experience in training dancers of all levels. 

Come and learn their secrets!

About the audition process:

The audition is at Wesley Memorial Church, from 19:30 Address:  New Inn Hall Street, Oxford OX1 2DH

There is no need to bring a partner to the audition and both students and non-students are welcome. Wear comfortable clothes, and dancing shoes (no problem if you do not own a pair – just make sure you avoid sticky shoes, (outdoor and black-soled footwear), and bring plenty of water. During the audition, there will be some social dancing to warm up and then the instructors will teach some shines and partner work.

After the audition, those selected will be invited to attend the first 4 weeks of training starting the following Monday. These initial training sessions will focus on technique, and at the end of the 4 weeks, the final team will be chosen.

These sessions will be held every week during university term time, and regular attendance is expected. Dancers who only take part in the first 4 weeks will pay reduced fees.

So save the date in your calendar and don’t miss out on this exciting opportunity! If you have any questions, feel free to message Brennan Delattre
