Estilo Dance Studio held their Spring Salsa Student Performance on March 21, 2009 at the TD University center in Mt. Laurel, NJ.

DVDs for the 2009 Spring Student Performance are available at Estilo Dance Studio.

The Estilo student performance is always a big production with an afternoon show and an evening show because of the droves of people who want to come and watch!    I went to watch the evening show and literally every seat was filled! People had to stand in the aisles!

If you are going to watch the performance next year, be sure to come early so you can grab your seat of choice.

My favorite performance and the crowd’s favorite performance was the Men’s Shine Performance.   All in all everyone did an absolutely FABULOUS job!
