Grading Results & Awards

☆ Gradings

A graded pass is required for progressing up levels in Salsa, Bachata & Kizomba. Salsa Latina is a leader in the industry in Street style Latin dances styles in NZ. We are the first in New Zealand to apply 'Group gradings' to progress students to higher levels. Gradings ensures better quality of dancers and its better for everyone in so many ways, including; Ensuring dancers are at the right level, Find weaknesses & strengths for improvement & ensuring the higher levels keep a higher standard. Since 2020 this has had a major positive impact on the classes and there has been a real shift in quality while challenging dancers & increase enjoyment for everyone. We hope that other dance schools follow the lead and take on the same approach to increase the standard throughout New Zealand. ....see more information on gradings here >
