We offer different levels of teams and performance challenges at DF Dance Studio:

1. Confident Beginner to Intermediate level performance challenges focus on learning choreography in a team environment, and enjoying the thrill of a performance! The seasons are shorter (November to February Season and March to June Season), there is less time commitment and pressure than a regular team, and costume costs are less, or non-existent. Students who have been dancing Salsa or Bachata for a short period of time, but are motivated and interested in improving their skills with a team and learning new techniques are also welcome.

2. Advanced beginner and Intermediate level teams have strict audition requirements and focus on helping students challenge themselves and become dancers in their own right. The requirements, time commitment, and expectations for these level teams are much higher than performance challenges.

-Note: if you are an On 1 salsa dancer, you are still eligible to try out for On 2 salsa teams at your dance level. The teams include technique and choreography classes which can help you learn On 2 timing.

IMPORTANT: Expectations on all teams and performance challenges require outside practice times on your own to improve, and dedication to the team. You must also ensure you're available and can make time for your team and their performances for the entire season.
