CALLEJEROS

If Latin Dance Classes are becoming too easy for you, and you are ready to take your dancing to the next level… then THE FASTEST way to improve your skills on the dance floor is to join our dance team “Callejeros”

Callejeros team has been performing and teaching since the early months of 2005. The creation of this organization was purely based on the objective to spread the knowledge of the Latin dance rhythms and its different styles. Although we started to practice in the summer of 2004, our first appearance in a national level was in March of 2005, which we would like to refer to as the true birth of Callejeros.

 

CALLEJEROS REGULAR CLASSES

Some of the responsability of being part of the top tier Callejeros team is to assist with our regular classes. Here is some of the music they use for the classes.
