In 2008, Latin Reflections took over running the socials at La Salsa De Hoy Dance Studio. There were many highs, including signature events such as the Latin Reflections Anniversary socials, the Dominican Indendence Day social, and the Holiday social. We've celebrated many birthdays and had probably hundreds of teams perform at Latin Reflections socials. The studio itself has had some issues in the past, such as renovations, etc, and as a result we had socials in other places such as joining forces with Tropical Image and having a joint social on 47th Street. We've also held our socials in Bay Ridge and the Karate Studio across the street from La Salsa De Hoy.
Approximately 10 years later, the time has come to exit stage left. Latin Reflections will hold their last social on Thursday April 5th, 2018 from 8 pm - 12 midnight @ SEV Studio Lounge, 870 4th Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11232.

Here at Latin Reflections, we teach a salsa class according to a salsa curriculum. There are 150 shines and 100 turns. In the beginner and intermediate levels, you repeat all the shines and turns you've learned. At the advanced level, there are just too many shines and turns to do in a row, so we learn a new turn and review a few others; we do a shine warmup and learn a new shine.

Now in its 17th year, the Latin Reflections dance team has choreographed many dance routines. You can see a small subset of the more recent routines on the Latin Reflections Videos page on their website. The team continues to be inspired by seeing new and innovative choreographies presented by other dance teams.
The last choreography by Latin Reflections was a bachata routine.
