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/

Past events directly organized by Judy D via Salsa in St. John’s were often fundraisers for multicultural organizations or for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.  Judy D, along with several other dedicated group members, have continued working to find new venues and organize new events for Salsa in St. John’s in order to keep our salsa dance community alive! Most recently, Judy has handed over leadership of the organization to Stacy Fowler, Latin Dance instructor and owner of Bailamos St. John’s. Judy and Stacy continue to work together and are excited to announce a new partnership with Boca Tapas Bar occasional Latin Dance lessons on Wednesdays. Boca will also be featuring Live Latin Music Friday and Saturday evenings, as well as various other Latin dance lessons and events…updates on this and other Latin dance news is available via our Salsa in St. John’s fb group and fb pages. Links for both are found on the left side of this website, including live stream updates about upcoming events.

If you are interested in hearing more about our organization, or in giving us a helping hand, please email judy.salsa”AT”gmail.com or stacymfowler”AT”gmail.com
