To participate in the competition, you must be current Toronto Dance Salsa students in level 3 or up and/or helpers enrolled or helping in the current semester. The list of rules and qualification is listed on the "salsa competition" page on the website.

I won't be able to tell you when it will be held this year, Sharon will have a better idea. But I can tell you the rules stayed pretty much the same for the last 2 years. Feel free to read the list and get an idea what's the rules and qualification is like for the TDS competition.

Hope you will be one for the contestants in the upcoming competition Smile It will be a great experience!

Are you Ready for the TDS 3rd Annual Amateur Salsa Competition?

The time has come to battle it out on the dance floor for the champion title at our third annual Toronto Dance Salsa Amateur Competition. Last year we had some amazing couples compete for some serious loot and the results were fantastic!

If you are a level 3 and up current student or helper who has not been paid to teach your own salsa class or perform, then you qualify! Don't get discouraged that you are still in the learning phase - everyone else will be in that phase also and remember that a competition will increase your confidence, showmanship and skills tenfold.

The preliminaries are freestyle which means you do not have to choreograph the performance as you won't know the song you are performing to although you can practice together, decide on how you will enter and exit, and what dips and tricks you will add to the dance, etc. To assist you Evan Carmichael has offered a free private lesson to each couple who enters the competition to assist them in preparation! Five couples will move on to the finals where the finalists will choreograph a 2.5 minute routine to their song choice.

We are also looking for companies who would like to sponsor the event. Gift certificates, dance shoes, music, travel vouchers, congress passes, lessons, cash prizes, restaurant certificates and much more are needed - please let us know if you can sponsor a prize or collect prizes.

More details can be found on our website. Please email us if you are interested in participating in the event at info@torontodancesalsa.ca!

Sharon, are there any firm dates yet?
Any tentative dates?
I know a couple of people would like to participate, but are held back by potential scheduling conflicts with pending business...

Thank you to all the prizes that have been donated so far for the competition. We are still looking for some small prizes for our competitors. If you work in a restaurant or retail outlet and can provide some small gift certificates it would be great.

Let me know!
