Frequently Asked Questions
When are CARAMELO auditions held and what can I expect?
Auditions are typically held two times per year. During auditions (typically 1 hour) you will have a short warm-up and dive into learning a choreographed piece (shine). We will assess your retention and execution of moves. Based on your auditions, we will recommend a team appropriate for your level. Auditions are coming up!
What should I bring to class?
We recommend you wear breathable leggings and comfortable tops to dance in. We do a lot of stretching in class so you want to make sure you can easily move around. We also recommend bringing salsa dance shoes to class although some people prefer jazz shoes. Listen to your body! A reusable water bottle is a must since we really get a good work-out in every class! Lastly, we recommend you bring a notebook to take notes on feedback you receive from the instructors.
What if I want to try out a class first?
Reach out to us to set up a time when you can come to a class and see how we teach. We also teach at socials, events, and separate workshops so you can see the style of dance we like to do!
Do you only teach salsa?
We are a predominantly an on 2 salsa dance team. However, we incorporate other styles of dance as well and have a lot of fun doing it! Some of the ones we are currently exploring include cha cha, pachanga, rumba styles (guaguancó, columbia, yambú). Our guest artists bring their own expertise to inform our dance styles!
