It was a great 10 years of operation in the Australasian region with Latin Dance Studios! We made many friends, met wonderful people and created lifetime memories at countless events and competitions with our amazing students and student teams. Thankfully, many of these dance memories that Giancarlo & Masha created through choreographies for Latin Dance Studios and Latinissimo have been captured on camera and can be relived here to take you down memory lane.
Thank you for all the support and love over the years! Latinissimo with Giancarlo & Masha as you know it will continue internationally...
