A little history…

Salsa in St. John’s is a community group of Volunteers, Dancers, and Businesses with the sole purpose of networking and promoting anything Salsa or Latin Dance! Salsa in St. John’s was originally created as a facebook group in July 2008 by Judy D as an informal volunteer-run dance information and event sharing group. It’s a place where members can see/write on the wall and view the “upcoming events” documents for any salsa or Latin dance events. If you’re curious to see or join our fb group, here’s the link: https://www.facebook.com/groups/SalsainSt.Johns/

Events directly organized by Judy D via Salsa in St. John’s have most often been fundraisers for multicultural organizations or for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.  Judy D, along with two other dedicated group members,  have recently started a community account for Salsa in St. John’s with the purpose of fundraising to help with such things as bringing more live entertainment for our salsa dances! If you are interested in hearing more about this, or in giving us a helping hand, please email judy.salsa”AT”gmail.com

Here’s some local salsa info and other interesting dance tidbits…
