Spartan Mambo Takes 3rd Place At JK Social

JK Salsa Social Competition

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!
