NUS Salsa was established in 2011 and is under the Cultural Activities Club (CAC) in NUS. Annually, NUS Salsa participates in a series of internal events in NUS such as CAC+US, a concert held over 2 consecutive days which showcases all the performing arts groups under CAC.
NUS Salsa is also involved in external events such as Bailamos, the annual production organised by SMU involving salsa clubs of all Singapore universities. In 2013, NUS Salsa clinched 2nd place in the Inter-Tertiary Salsa Competition (Open-Category), held yearly by NTU. 2014 was an exciting year for this club as it organised its first major salsa event, the Singapore Inter-tertiary Jack & Jill Competition. This successful event was the first ever social dancing competition at tertiary level in Singapore.
Since 2013, NUS Salsa has been training under Derrick Lye and Christina Pan from Mosaic Dance Company. Under their lead, dynamicity in NUS Salsa’s dancers have been developed as they explore different styles of salsa, various genres of Latin dance such as bachata and cha cha cha, and also venture into other forms of dances. The growth of this young salsa club is evident as in their most recent choreography showcased at Bailamos X: 2014.
