DC'S RISING SALSA COMPANY

About Ardiente

The name is Spanish for passionate, but in the DMV, Ardiente has become synonymous with precision, musicality, and style.

The team was founded in 2016 by six young, dedicated dancers with over 10 years of experience in creating choreography, performing and teaching Latin dance.

Although all Ardiente dancers come from different backgrounds, they are brought together by their passion for dance. The goal of Ardiente Dance Company is to introduce a fresh new perspective to the dance community by expressing everyone's unique and energetic style.
