The 2012 season will see XS Latin A dancing a very exciting new routine and XS Latin B building on their Cabaret programme.
Castings for both teams for the new season will take place on Monday 9th January at Milton Community Centre from 20:20 to 22:20. Dancers aged from 15 to 40 are welcome to attend, regardless of levels of experience. You do not need to bring a partner and you do not need to have had any previous latin formation experience to come along. To compete with one of our teams you must not be a professional ballroom or Latin American dancer or a professionally qualified teacher of dance with one of the recognised dance teaching organisations (e.g. IDTA, ISTD, NATD etc).
If you would like to find out more or would like to join XS Latin but are unable to attend the casting session then please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
