Competition Accomplishments Latinissimo

Latinissimo as a dance school has competed in 4 continents (Australasia, North America, Europe, Asia), in amateur and professional categories as teams and couples. Latinissimo has had the priviledge of representing both Australia and New Zealand 6 times at a World Championship competition placing in the top 4 each time.

2012 was one of Latinissimo's proudest moments when students (amateurs) Tania Mason and Enrique Johns were crowned World Amateur Salsa Champions. Today both dancers are successful professionals performing on national, international and TV stages (Dancing With The Stars).

Testimonials

If you want to learn how to dance, grow, perform, lead properly and become "good" – this requires commitment, persistence and a school with a good dancing development structure. – For this – Latinissimo excels!"
