Latino Grooves is dedicated to promoting Latin culture in Adelaide and across Australia. Through music, dance and world-class events, we are bringing the authentic spirit of Latin America to you!

Latino Grooves is South Australia's most prominent and professional Latin entertainment company, specialising in Latin dance tuition, events, night club productions, festivals, international concerts, as well as corporate and private functions. They are the people to see on all matters Latino and entertainment!

Its founder is multi-talented musician, dancer and DJ, Hugo Salcedo. Born in Cartagena, Colombia, Hugo's passion for his culture saw him work tirelessly in the Latin community since his arrival in Australia in 1999, finally establishing Latino Grooves in 2005. Hugo is also the Director of SALCDO Band , one of Australia’s most successful Latin bands.

Hugo is credited by many as having introduced Salsa to Adelaide. An impromptu performance many years ago had people begging him to teach. The rest as they say, is history.

In 2007, Hugo joined forces with well-known Latin dance instructor and performer Julia Gonzalez, who has a wealth of knowledge and experience from her years teaching and performing in Sydney - the capital of Salsa and Latin dance in Australia.

Hugo and Julia are extremely sought after and respected Latin dancers and personalities within the Australian Salsa community. They are considered Adelaide’s representatives, having been invited to perform and teach at Australia's and the world's most prestigious Latin dance events.

With a gorgeous dance studio right in the heart of Adelaide city, Latino Grooves provides superior Latin dance tuition and boasts the finest Latin dance instructors and performers in South Australia. Latino Grooves have been responsible for many great events such as the Latino Grooves Festival (formerly known as Tropicana Festival), international concerts such as Sonora Carruseles (COL), Fulanito (USA), Tito Puente Jr (USA) and most recently, the hugely successful annual Adelaide Salsa Festival!

Their regular parties at the Governor Hindmarsh Hotel and the Arkaba Hotel are the most popular and successful Latino events in Adelaide!
