AUSTRALIAN SALSA OPEN CHAMPIONS

Management Latin Dance - Tuesday, June 18, 2013

More champions at LDA!




The Australian Salsa Open is over and Latin Dance Australia has once again shown why we are at the forefront of the Latin Dance Industry here in Australia. 

This weekend was true testament to the hard work that's been put into to our students and professionals at LDA. 

Our success is due to many factors but here are some:

- The support systems we have at LDA are not available or seen anywhere else . 
- The training methods and teachers we have in all styles is unmatched. 
- The encouragement and opportunities given to our members to excel is 2nd to none ... 
- The willingness to share and grow by students and teachers alike is a constant source of inspiration .... 



On top of that we also helped train dancers who represent other companies regardless of whether they work for LDA or not, as sign of our true commitment to help the whole seen grow. 

I would like to acknowledge all the dancers who represented LDA regardless of their placings . For us, what you have done is won your placing in our hearts for your pride in flying the LDA Banner.

We cant thank you all enough  You have paved the way for many many more dancers to walk the same path in years to come.
