Yes – The Latin Symbolics are heading in to our 22nd year!
We have several teams at various levels of dance ability and committment.
Our two higher level teams, meet year round & are accepting new members.
The Latin Symbolics (TLS) and The Latin Symbolics II (TLS II) both study and perform several different dances – not just Salsa – we also do Cha Cha Cha, NY Latin Hustle, Bachata and more. In TLS we also do high level lifts and tricks, which we are well known for, so we look for people that are athletic, strong, and willing to work hard!
In TLS II you will start to train & perform lifts, but will not perform “overhead” lifts.
Members of TLS and TLS II take weekly class w/ Ava & Rodolfo for free, and get fantastic discounts on many of the classes taught by other instructors at our studio as well. Plus – you get credit off your monthly dues for any of the weekly classes you take from us and other instructors! Take more classes and your monthly team dues get lower.
The more classes you take – the LESS you pay!
