New dancers take title

Couple take on Northwest Qualifiers for the World Latin Cup in Portland, Oregon

Olga Mosca and Logan Volkers with Victoria’s Salsa Caliente have been dancing together less than six months.

But in their first competition, June 7, they beat out far more experienced dancers to win Victoria’s amateur championship.

The couple moved on to the Northwest Qualifiers for the World Latin Cup in Portland, Oregon last weekend where they competed against dancers from Washington, Oregon, Idaho and California for a chance to move on to the World Latin Cup, to be held in Miami in December.

Mosca and Volkers were responsible for editing their own music, choreographing their own routine, making their own costumes and rehearsing until the competition.

Since their win in Victoria, they had the opportunity to train with world famous choreographer and judge, Nelson Flores from New York, and trained with Christina Morrison from Salsa Caliente, also a World Salsa Open Judge, until the competition.

Results of the Northwest Qualifiers  were not known at the News deadline. Visit CalienteDance.com for more information.
