Enroll your child today and embark on an extraordinary dance adventure with the Latin Street Melao Jr. Team. Our junior dancers have not only demonstrated their exceptional talents but have also left an indelible mark on the dance world by gracing renowned events such as the Chicago International Salsa Congress and the Chicago Salsa Bachata Festival in both 2022 and 2023.

At Latin Street, we are dedicated to fostering the development of young dancers, providing a nurturing environment where passion and skill converge. Our Melao Jr. Team serves as a platform for your child to not only showcase their dancing progress but also to grow personally and discover the incredible journey that dance offers.

Joining our team means more than just learning dance steps; it’s a commitment to self-discovery, discipline, and the joy of expressing oneself through the art of dance. Our experienced instructors are not only experts in their craft but also mentors who guide and inspire each young dancer to reach their full potential.

quarterly recital

All ages
Saturday 5:30 – 7 PM
with Mia, Yanira & Jungle

As part of our dedication to showcasing our students’ accomplishments, we organize quarterly recitals, providing a total of four opportunities each year for parents, family members, and friends to witness the remarkable evolution of their children in the world of dance.

These recitals serve as a culmination of the hard work, dedication, and passion our students pour into their classes, offering a spectacular display of their newfound abilities and artistic expressions.

Our quarterly recitals go beyond being mere performances; they are a celebration of community, resilience, and the joy that comes from pursuing a passion. The stage becomes a canvas upon which our students paint their stories of progress, determination, and the sheer joy of expressing themselves through dance.

Recital Dates:
June 8th  –   September 7th   –   December 7th
