What we're about

This group (formerly known as West End Dance Mixers) is for anyone interested in dancing in the west end of the Greater Toronto Area and a little further.

We either create, or find, events happening in the west end that play some, or all, of the following:

• Salsa (L.A., Mambo, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Cali, Salsa Dura, Rueda de Casino, Timba, Cumbia, etc.),

• Bachata (Traditional Dominican Bachata, Modern Bachata, Sensual Bachata, etc.),

• Kizomba (Semba, Kizomba, Urban Kiz, Ghetto Zouk, Kompa, etc.),

• Cha Cha Cha (all kinds),

• Merengue (all kinds),

• Latin Hustle (Disco, Pop, etc.), and

• maybe more.

Sometimes we even have a lesson. This group was created to help people who don't want to go all the way into Toronto for a dance event, but still want to get out for some dancing.

Everyone is welcome, and so is your feedback.
