πŸ”₯ We’re excited to have you join us as we strive to revolutionize the salsa and bachata community and industry. πŸ‘ŠΒ  At Alma Latina, we value technique, artistry, and discipline above fame, natural talent, and ego-driven attitudes. πŸ₯‡ Our goal is to provide our dancers with an empowering training experience that helps them develop pride in their skills and knowledge.

πŸ’ƒπŸ½ COUPLES πŸ•ΊπŸ½
There will be three levels of Co-Ed bachata teams. πŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ•ΊπŸ½ If you are auditioning for the advanced team, there will be a separate audition (free of charge) after you pass the one for the intermediate team. Your second audition will be covered by the payment you made at the first audition.

πŸ“ In order to apply, couples must audition as a couple, attend all training sessions, provide feedback, and submit video submissions as a couple. When one member of a couple is at a lower level than the other, the pair will be placed on the team with their lower level dancer. Re-auditioning for the higher level will be possible in 3 months, depending on what Directors Luis Mujica and Gabriela Equiz decide. πŸ’ͺ🏽



πŸ’ͺ We’re confident that being a part of Alma Latina will be a rewarding and enriching experience for you. πŸ’– We look forward to working with you and helping you grow as a dancer. πŸ†

πŸ”₯ Nos emociona que te unas en nuestro esfuerzo por revolucionar la comunidad y la industria de la salsa y la bachata. πŸ‘ŠΒ  En Alma Latina valoramos la tΓ©cnica, el arte y la disciplina por encima de la fama, el talento natural y las actitudes impulsadas por el ego. πŸ₯‡Β  Nuestro objetivo es proporcionar a nuestros bailarines una experiencia de entrenamiento con empoderamiento, que les ayuda a desarrollar orgullo en sus habilidades y conocimientos.

πŸ’ƒπŸ½ PAREJAS πŸ•ΊπŸ½
HabrΓ‘ tres niveles de equipos mixtos de bachata. πŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ•ΊπŸ½ Si te presentas a la audiciΓ³n para el equipo avanzado, habrΓ‘ una audiciΓ³n aparte (gratuita) despuΓ©s de que pases la del equipo intermedio. Tu segunda audiciΓ³n se cubrirΓ‘ con el pago que hiciste en la primera audiciΓ³n.

πŸ“ Para postularse, las parejas deben audicionar como pareja, asistir a todas las sesiones de entrenamiento, proporcionar comentarios y enviar videos como pareja. Cuando un miembro de una pareja estΓ© en un nivel inferior al otro, la pareja se colocarΓ‘ en el equipo con su bailarΓ­n de nivel inferior. La reaudiciΓ³n para el nivel superior serΓ‘ posible en 3 meses, dependiendo de lo que decidan los Directores Luis Mujica y Gabriela Equiz. πŸ’ͺ🏽



πŸ’ͺ Estamos seguros de que formar parte de Alma Latina serΓ‘ una experiencia gratificante y enriquecedora para ti. πŸ’– Esperamos trabajar contigo y ayudarte a crecer como bailarΓ­n. πŸ†

πŸ—£ We want to make sure that our performances are the best they can be, so before you hit the stage at any local events or join the team for national or international events, we’ll need you to get the green light from Directors Luis and Gabriela. βœ… They’ll be able to let you know if you’re ready to take the next step and shine on stage. ✨

Also, in order to maintain high standard of performance, it’s crucial to attend regularly at trainings and feedback and rehearsal sessions, aiming for a 85% attendance or above. πŸš€

If you wish to perform with the team at a national or international event, you’ll need to reserve your spot at least two months in advance to allow us to incorporate you into the formation and choreography. 🌟

Sure thing! 🌟 Alma Latina Team choreographies are designed to be flexible and work for larger groups. πŸ•ΊπŸ’ƒ
