San Diego and Tijuana Based Salsa Dance Troupe Makes Headlines

Thursday, November 27, 2008


San Diego is blessed to have lots of salsa talent.  Many people don’t realize, though, that San Diego’s location close to the border of Mexico means that some of that talent is influenced by dancers from Mexico.

Case in point is salsa dance troupe Alma Latina.  Based out of Tijuana and led by salsa champions Gabriela Equiz & Sergio Jasso, the group is comprised of dancers from both the United States and Mexico.  Alma Latina was recently highlighted in an article that appeared in the Union Tribune and mentions their efforts at qualifying for the next World Salsa Championships.  The video in this article above shows a small glimpse of the dance teams expertise.

As with many dance troupes in San Diego, Alma Latina’s members have roots that connect them with Majesty in Motion’s dance team (you can check out the interview I did of them in this past Ritmo Bello article).  

Both teams and many other dance troupes in San Diego will be working hard to compete in the next Salsa World Championships (originally set for December but postponed for now).  For now make sure to show your support for Alma Latina and all the other local dance teams that bring the spotlight to San Diego.
