Hi guys! We are extremely excited to announce our Intensive Training & Performance Courses in Salsa, Cha Cha Cha and Ladies Styling. All starting on 21st and 23rd January 2014, aimed at dancers at Intermediate / Advanced level.

Auditions will be taking place on January 14th and January 16th at our Paddington Academy venue.

Make sure to check out all of the course descriptions and contact us if you are interested - limited spaces available!

Performance courses are a great and unique opportunity to work hard on your dancing, technique, core fitness, posture and confidence, stage presence, musical interpretation, body movement and polish your all around dancing skills. What's more, you will have opportunities to perform at local and international events, festivals and congresses.

Caramelo's Shaan will be choreographing the Salsa Partnerwork and the Cha Cha Cha courses, assisted by Danie Street.

This is an exceptional opportunity to be trained by and learn from one of the top UK teachers and performers, whose experience spans 19 years, 15 of which Shaan has been teaching and raising several generations of dancers, many of which have gone on to become established performers and instructors themselves.

We are also proud to have Danie take the lead on the Ladies Styling course, it's going to be hot!!!

Being in a student dance team is a great way to take your dancing to the next level. Although it is hard work, benefits are enormous for those passionate about improving and developing on their dance journey. You will receive a lot of friendly feedback and support throughout the courses.

Dare to be more!
