DANZA RAMA is back November 9th!! Our 3rd annual Gala Latin Cabaret Ball will be our best yet, combining awesome atmosphere with professional and amateur entertainment and activities for both our social dancing/Salsa crowd and our awesome Zumba fitness crew!
This year’s programme is shaping up even better, as each year we learn more about producing the type of event that Danza Loca students will continue to enjoy and demand!
Danza Rama is our biggest PARTY of the year, but it’s still a cabaret, with professional and amateur dance performances and some friendly competitions included, though we’ve kept the programme simple to maximise dancing and party time with our DJ’s and percussion crew.
We’ll be dining from a sensational gourmet buffet and carvery from sponsors, WA Spit Roast. Ticket price still includes Champagne on arrival and some table wines.

SOCIAL DANCE COMPETITIONS!
The competition structure this year focuses on maximum fun for social dancers. Only 7 friendly competitions are planned for Danza Rama. If you wish to participate in any of the competitions at Danza Rama you must REGISTER ON THE NIGHT (simple entry forms will be available on tables, to be completed and submitted to the Registrar. Male competitors will need to collect a number which must be worn while competing). There are NO FEES for entering the competitions. Adjudicators will be judging partnering skills, timing and Latin style.
Non-Registered Couples* Events : (Any couples not registered as competitors with Dancesport WA)
1) Salsa Casino (Restricted): Up to Intermediate 2 level figures only.
2) Salsa Casino (Open): Open to all levels (Teachers, “pros” and registered dancers may also enter if desired, but only with an amateur or student partner.)
Jack and Jill (Juan y Juana) Events: Partnerships are randomly drawn from all entrants. No “Pros”. No restrictions on steps other than mentioned in rules below.
5) Cha Cha Cha
6) Salsa Casino
7) Rueda Triples (teams of 3 couples each, calling their own Ruedas!). Pros ok!
Events are restricted to amateur entrants only, except for events 2 and 7. For the purposes of DANZARAMA we consider a “professional” or “non-amateur” as:
• Social & Latin American dance teachers (Danza Loca staff or not)
• Anyone who has received formal training toward becoming a dance teacher
• Anyone who has received remuneration for teaching dancing, including paid assistants
• Couples currently registered as competitors with Dancesport WA
Such individuals are considered to have an unfair advantage over regular dance students in regards to resources available for competition preparation.
For everyone’s safety, 1 RULE is in place for ALL competitions: Lifts, tail (floor) spins and high back-kicks are not permitted. For the purposes of this rule, a lift is defined as any movement during which a competitor has both feet of the floor at the same time with the support or assistance of their partner. High back kicks are defined as when the entire back leg is raised higher than the knee of the supporting leg.”
