4/4/2014, 6 a.m.
CATONSVILLE, Md. UNIK Latin Dance Company of Baltimore was born in 2014 out of a desire to make the Baltimore Latin Dance scene stronger and more diverse. “UNIK,” was formed as a collaboration between Latin Dance instructors from the Baltimore area who share the same passion for Latin dancing and the same vision for the community, to offer Baltimoreans premier dance instruction in a variety of Latin rhythms. Combined, the instructors bring a level of diversity never seen before in the Baltimore community! They are experts in teaching everything-Salsa, Bachata, Cha-Cha, Afro-Latin, Cuban Salsa (Rueda and Casino), Flamenco, organizing and coordinating dance teams, choreographing dances for birthdays, weddings, sweet 16 celebrations, offering entertainment for corporate and non-corporate events.
Although they all have their individual dance related businesses, they wanted to come together to form UNIK because they are passionate about changing the Baltimore Dance scene landscape by combining, as this fun group of teachers like to refer to it, “their dancing superpowers.”
Brandon Ross, a United States Army drill sergeant and UNIK instructor points out, UNIK is special because “it brings to the Baltimore community a wide variety of dance styles exposing customers to more than just one way of dancing and enjoying music. It is also important, for everyone, but especially for the youth, to be involved in something that will require hard work and discipline”
