Spartan Mambo took 2nd place at the 11th Annual Next Generation College Salsa Congress held in Los Angeles this past weekend. We had tough competition from schools like CSUN, Stanford, and CSULB and were just a few points shy of the top spot.
We also performed our 2015 championship winning salsa routine as well as a new bachata routine. Thanks to everyone who supported us on our journey, and congratulations to all the dancers!

Spartan Mambo took 3rd place this past weekend at the finals of the JK Social salsa competition held in Los Angeles. The finals were a culmination of 4 qualifier competitions, with teams such as Alma Latina Dance Company from Mexico and Clave y Tumbao from LA competing for the championship.
The competition was a great practice competition for the team as we prepare for the Collegiate Salsa Open next week. Thanks everyone for the support!
Our team is excited to be competing at the JK Social next week! We will be competing in the Amateur teams division against other teams for California, for a chance to win the $1000 prize! Wish us luck!
