Salsa Dancing in the Summer

I am convinced that there is very little that can top salsa dancing on the streets in the summer to a live salsa band. That is what I love about Toronto in the summer. From the Jazz Festivals to the Toronto Street Festival to the Salsa on St. Clair festival, there is no shortage of great salsa being played live under the sun or the stars. Of course you have to not mind getting very hot and sweaty and remember that you can’t turn properly. However if you keep your moves simple and have lots of water on hand it is well worth the experience.

Hopefully many of you got to enjoy the salsa bands that played in Toronto in the past two weeks as part of Luminato and the Taste of Little Italy festivals. Just so you don’t miss some good events coming up in Toronto here are the main festivals with live salsa music:

The Toronto Jazz Festival – June 22nd – July 1st
Salsa on St. Clair – July 13-14th
Beaches International Jazz Festival – July 26-29th

Of course there are also the free concerts at the Harbourfront Centre, the Dundas & Yonge Square, Mel Lastman Square, the Distillery and much more.

We’ll keep you informed as the summer progressed.

Happy summer salsa dancing!
