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:
Spartan Mambo had a great time participating at the annual San Luis Obispo Salsa Exchange! This was our 5th year attending the event and we had a blast participating in the activities, competing in the Jack & Jill, and dancing the night away! Looking forward to next year’s event!
Thanks to everyone who came out and supported us at our first salsa social of the semester! We had over 60 attendees taking salsa lessons and dancing the night away! Special thanks to our friends from UC Santa Cruz who came out to support our event!
Our next social will be Saturday, April 16th from 6pm-midnight in SPX! Come join us; tickets are just $5 pre-sale (ask a team member) or $7 at the door!
Spartan Mambo had a great time performing at the International House’s annual Pancake Breakfast! We have now been performing at the I-House Pancake Breakfast for 6 years! Thanks for always inviting us to be a part of this great cultural showcase!
Here’s a video of our championship-winning routine which we performed last weekend at Stanford’s salsa social! We are working hard on new performance and competition routines for this semester, so stay tuned!
Do you want to make new friends, learn how to dance salsa, and perform on stage?
If so, join us on Saturday, February 13th at 10am at the Multipurpose Room in the Event Center for auditions for the Spring 2016 semester!
The audition will consist of a brief warmup, followed by learning and performing a brief footwork & partnerwork routine. We are looking for team players with a positive attitude who can learn quickly. No experience or partner necessary.
Spartan Mambo had a great showing at the 2015 World Latin Dance Cup this past week, held in Miami. The team made it to the finals for a number of categories including Amateur Salsa Mens Team and Amateur Salsa Ladies Team and walked away with some trophies in a few categories! Thank you everyone for your support!
Spartan Mambo had a great performance during the semi-final round of the 2015 World Latin Dance Cup. Unfortunately, due to some poor calls from the judges, the team did not make it to the finals for the salsa division, but we still had a great show nonetheless!
Spartan Mambo did qualify for the finals for a number of other divisions including Amateur Womens Teams, Amateur Mens Teams, Amateur Lyrical Soloist, Amateur Kizomba Couple, and Amateur Zouk Couple, so we still have a shot at placing in multiple categories!
