One of our instructors, Mia Ines, was the very first student in our kids’ program many years ago. Since then, Mia has trained extensively in various dance styles and has become a skilled dancer.

Breakdancing is a physical challenge that promotes quick thinking, an excellent attitude to dance, and creativity. Our studio is committed to creating a safe and welcoming space where children can freely discover and pursue their love for dancing.



We love to celebrate our students’ progress and achievements. Our Kid’s program includes a recital at the end of every three sessions (approximately every three months), where parents, family, and friends can witness their child’s growth and development in dance.

This program has evolved into the Latin Street Melao’ Junior Team, a group of talented young dancers who have showcased their skills at prestigious events such as the Chicago International Salsa Congress and the Chicago Salsa Bachata Festival in 2022 and 2023. We take pride in nurturing the next generation of passionate and skilled dancers, and invite your child to join us on this exciting journey of growth and self-discovery.
