SALSA

SALSA is usually a partner dance that is associated to salsa music now popular worldwide.  It has its origins in the ’50s to ’70s, with the truly distinct salsa style coming out of New York in the ’70s. The music fuses a number of Cuban styles, but also draws from a number of other Latin American musical styles using the maracas, conga drums, and guiros.

Salsa has become one of the hottest trends and Toronto has one of the best Salsa scenes in the world. It is a great way to meet people and have fun.  No partner is required!! Not to mention that dancing improves posture and grace, and also a fun way to keep in shape. Learn the dance and go out dancing at venues available every night of the week and meet new friends along the way!

We offer all levels of classes depending on your experience. We host outings regularly so you will get to practice and show off what you learn!
