Baila Conmigo, or “dance with me” in Spanish, is a New Jersey based dance company founded in 2009 by Johana Vasquez. Thanks to their fast paced footwork, high flying acrobatics, and high energy choreographies, Baila Conmigo has grown to be one of the most recognized and prestigious Colombian style salsa dance companies in the world.
While the company started off with a small performance team in 2010, in just two short years, Vasquez’s small dance company was already traveling to congresses all over the country. By the end of 2012, both Baila Conmigo and Baila Conmigo Kids competed in the World Latin Dance Cup, placing in several categories, and winning even more in 2013. In 2014, the two performance teams came together and not only competed, but became semi-finalists on the NBC television show “America’s Got Talent.”
This television run led to performances on various television shows and a huge venues such as Madison Square Garden and Metlife Stadium. Since then, Baila Conmigo has continued to travel to international salsa congresses and compete as well as win divisions of both the World Latin Dance Cup and the World Salsa Summit. Most recently, the adult team won first place in the Small Teams Cabaret division at the 2016 World Salsa Summit. Many Baila Conmigo dancers have also been cast in Broadway shows, TV commercials, international TV programs and more.
Baila Conmigo promises to always deliver a fun, family oriented class experience. Whether it be social dance training or professional dance training, the faculty and instructors of the company promise to always push its students to be the best they can be and love what they do. Performances are always high quality, energetic, and passionate as a result of the amount of dedication the dancers put into their training. Moreover, Baila Conmigo strives to consistently give back to their community, promoting fitness, family, and culture throughout the tristate area.
