Salsa Susie’s Ooh La La Dance Team Competing on America’s Got Talent

Monday, May 23, 2011

The season premiere of NBC’s America’s Got Talent airs Tuesday, May 31st at 8pm and San Diego’s Ooh La La Cosabellas were hand-selected to audition for the show.  Salsa Susie, director of the group,  has worked hard over the last few years preparing her dance teams and it looks like the hard work is paying off in a big way.  The picture above and video below show some highlights of the dance team’s competition.

Along with competing on network TV, Ooh La La is  hosting a huge FREE event for the San Diego dance community in the form of a “Day of Dance & Wellness”.  As Salsa Susie describes it herself, the event is her way to thank everyone that has allowed Ooh La La to continue with great success:

“I’m giving back to the community and really want the San Diego Salsa & Latin Community to be able to enjoy what dance & wellness has brought to my life.”

I’ve included a schedule below outlining some of the events Ooh La La will be hosting on Saturday June 11th:

For more information on the event please contact Susie directly at her website,

See you all on June 11th!

Junior and Emily of Amicitia Dance Company are back from their competition on America’s Got Talent and are busy here in San Diego with new training sessions.

For those of you not familiar with the brother and sister salsa duo, the video here is a promotional training video about them.  (Although I don’t support one studio over another, Junior and Emily definitely stand out amongst the crowd for their national exposure.)  

To find out more information about the group, I know that Alex Tiger is part of the Pro Team and is also an Assistant Organizer with the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup.  Feel free to sign up for the San Diego Salsa and Latin Dancing Meetup group if you are not already a member!
