Who we are:

Piel Canela Dance Company was founded in October of the year 2000. We are always looking for new committed, loyal and energetic members that will join our family of dancers for year to come as we begin our 16th season. Our 15th Season included an amazing array of high exposure shows and events. We continue to grow our dance company to new levels by taking on new dancers, adding new choreography, training our dancers in different styles of dance, and exposing our dancers to different instructors, and performance opportunities. We have traveled the world spreading our love for the arts, and educating the world on our latin dance and music. We have participated in most of the major Salsa congresses around the United states and around the world. We strive to educate all of our dancers on what it means to be part of a team and how to help others. We have a strong team mentality in our company and we trust in this value to keep our group strong and undivided. We are looking for dancers eager to train hard and learn about all aspects of Bachata. Eager to learn about the dance, eager to learn about the artists, the culture and the history not just choreography. If this is what interests you than this is the team for you! Looking for for both men and women to audition.
