Steps Dance Studio’s Amateur Dance Team, or the A-Team as they are often referred to, was formed in January of 2010 and currently consists of sixteen dancers, many of whom started out as students of the school and have grown to develop a passion for salsa.
Under the direction of Jennifer Aucoin, the team made their debut performance at the 2010 Canada Salsa Congress with their Mambo Jumbo routine and have gone on to perform at various events such as the Toronto Bachata Festival, Toronto Salsa Festival and the Montreal Salsa Convention. The team has also been involved in events such as Luminato and Salsa on St Clair in Toronto, as well as the Salsa at Blue Mountain festival in Collingwood.
Although each of the team members has their own favourite Latin dance style, they are all very well versed in Salsa, Bachata, Cha-cha, and Latin Hustle. As a result, they often act as ambassadors for the school during Steps’ monthly student socials. Look out for the team members wearing Steps t-shirts at our socials and ask them to dance – they’ll be happy to say yes!
The Amateur team is available to perform at weddings, corporate events, street festivals and private functions. Please email Jennifer@stepsdancestudio.com or call her at 416-656-STEP (7837) for booking info.
