Spartan Mambo competed at the 2nd annual Collegiate Salsa Open held in L.A. this past weekend, and we won the competition for the 2nd year in a row!
Spartan Mambo competed against top college salsa teams from USC, UCLB, and CSUN to win the title of college salsa champion, as well as $1,500 in prize money!
Thanks to everyone who has supported our team this semester to make this accomplishment possible!

Spartan Mambo just returned from the 9th Annual College Salsa Congress in LA this past weekend, and our team came in 2nd place in the competition!
The competition was super close this year, and we were just 1 point behind the winning team! The performance team also had a good show with a rendition of our 2014 competition piece, Salsa y Sabor!
Thanks to everyone who supported us and helped us reach this point! Wish us luck as we return to LA in 2 weeks to defend our title at the Collegiate Salsa Open!

Spartan Mambo debuted our new routine at the 2016 SF Salsa Festival this weekend! We have been working hard all semester on this routine as we prepare for the College Salsa Congress and Collegiate Salsa Open, and it was exciting to debut our routine at this event! The routine is still in progress, but we will begin performing it locally soon!
This year, we were also given the opportunity to perform at the SF Salsa Festival as part of the Friday night show. Below is a video of our performance:
