Similarly, from your side, the amount of consistent work and dedication you put in is of utmost importance to your success and your ability to perform the choreography to the required standard. All performances are merit-based and are not guaranteed unless you reach the required level.

 

The costumes are selected by the school and the team director to match the vision of the choreography. They are professionally made to measure.

Performance Courses Testimonials

"Guys, there are some things that you HAVE to do at least once in your life. This, I have to say, is most definately one of them. Shaan, Danie and the whole Caramelo crew will take you on a journey that will show you another side of life and of yourself. As you can see from the pictures you will also be looking fabulous on stage thanks to Anna, the creative costume coordinator.

You'll travel, perform, you will wine and dine, meet new faces and see a new side to old ones. All with a great bunch of people who only want one thing...for you to give your best.

Time + energy + passion = Caramelo Performance Team. Good luck on your new journey." - Greg Hunte


"I have done salsa, mambo, bachata, cha cha and ladies styling with this wonderful dance school and it is by far the most welcoming and accommodating school in London. After embarking on two 12 week performance courses with two extremely talented teachers (Papa Shaan and Mamma D- Miss Danie) I am no less than addicted to their style, drive and passion for Dance. If ever you wish to become a real dancer, the kind that requires blood, sweat and tears, this is your school. This team of professionals will let you give no less than your best and I will be forever indebted to them for it. I am so proud to call this beautiful group of people, teachers and the students alike, that I have had the pleasure of boogying with on and off the dance floor not just friends but my Caramelo dance family. I would recommend this school to anyone and everyone! YOU WILL LOVE IT!"  - Jenna Rennie


"I've been taking classes in Caramelo for about a year and a half and I love it!! The teachers are super fun and friendly, the content of the classes is always changing so you can do classes over and over again without ever getting bored! There is an amazing choice of levels of difficulty/styles of latin dances I made many many good friends with whom I often go out for salsa parties, but also for "normal" nights out. More recently I was involved in the performance course and I just loved it!! Quite a lot of hard work that's true, but it's just so rewarding and fun to be able to perform in the end in front of crowds, both in London & internationally, we felt like superstars!! We travelled all together to Croatia to perform, and it was probably one of the best holidays of my life: a bit of sightseeing, trekking in the nature, lazy time on the beach, rehearsing, dancing parties, dance workshops, restaurants... :D Would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn salsa, whatever the levels, in a friendly and fun atmosphere!!" - Vinh Chuc
