Melbourne's Premier Latin Dance Academy

What are Squad Memberships?

Squad Memberships are an innovative way to improve your dancing… quickly! It is also a cost-effective way to make use of the all the classes and courses, appropriate to your level, at Spin City Dance.

Squad gives you the benefit of the team-tutorship: Salsa Squads are designed and led by Sharon Pakir; the Brasil Squad by James Athanassiou; and both are ably assisted by Spin City PRO team instructors and carefully selected mentors.

Squad membership is a superbly crafted dance syllabus that helps you to quickly combine technique, improve your partnership skills, and find what is uniquely ‘you’ so that you can become the dancer that you long to be.

In general, squad membership requires a set 5-6 hour per week commitment, are organised so progress is made within a team, offer progressive level training, performance opportunities as well as intense technical attention that is level-appropriate.

As anyone who has ever been a part of a sports team or dance troupe knows, one of the biggest benefits of a Squad structure is the social connection and bonds that are made, in a supportive team-learning environment.

General Squad Information

Benefits and extra classes:

Squad membership covers your compulsory Squad classes, and as well as any other class at Spin City that is appropriate to your level. Please consult the term timetable for further information about extra classes. Squad membership also gives you priority when booking or organising private lessons and studio hire for practice.


It is desirable to have a partner with whom you are registering for Squad Membership. This ensures even ratios for both dance classes and performance classes. We encourage you to come as a partnership, as Salsa, Zouk and Samba de Gafieira are partner dances, and great connection is vital to both the execution and enjoyment of these Latin styles.

It may not be essential, to have a partner for Squad acceptance, but preference and places will be given to partnerships first. If you do register without a partner, you may be excluded from performing in competitions, but certainly not from non-competitive performances. While Spin City Dance may be able to assist you to find a partner, it is not our guarantee.

Time Commitment:

The time commitments listed under each Squad description above are compulsory squad attendance times. You should be aware, however, that all squad memberships may require extra practice and rehearsals, particularly when a performance or competition is nigh. You can expect extra rehearsal times to be scheduled on some weekends.

You are also encouraged to organise practise times with your partner, team, or other team members. Studio space at Spin City can be booked at just $5 per person, per hour.
