    Hey Toronto peeps!
    I'll be passing through Toronto for one night & would love to go dancing! I'm hoping to hit up the Cuban dance scene while I'm there in particular. I'll be there Thursday, July 8th. Recommendations? Anyone want to meet up? :)

    Best place to dance in Toronto hands down is the Sunday Salsa Social at the Dovercourt House.

    • 805 Dovercourt Road, Toronto, ON
    • Best music, best DJ, best dance floor
    • Free parking, free coat check
    • Best bar prices (eg. $1 for water)
    • $6 for social dancing only (actually now 2 socials in one, zouk/kizomba in lower lounge)
    • $10 for social dancing + complimentary bachata lesson at 5:15-6, zouk 6:15 to 7 in lower lounge
    • social dancing from 6 - 10 pm, later hours if its a holiday

    Any updates for Toronto? Will be in town on a Friday night. On 2 preferred but don't mind dancing both!

    Which Friday?

    Check out the Facebook group "Toronto Salsa Fridays". These parties normally attract On2 dancers. This event is every other Friday, so double check which Friday(s) are having the event.

    I live in Ontario, and frequently visit Toronto, just not for Salsa, but Bachata.
    I think i am a little late, since the Friday you were planning to visit most likely passed.
    Uptown Loft is your best bet for Salsa, or now Fridays at Dovercourt 2nd and 4th week.
    There's iFreestyle which focuses more on2, but our community is more on1, it isn't like New York. Cuban Salsa, is also becoming more popular.
