Bigger, Better, Bolder Miss Bachata Opening Night!
Hello FXers, Our opening night at the Port Credit Legion was incredible. We had 150 people attend, and positive guest comments are posted everywhere. “Thanks for creating a safe environment”, “great crowd, great energy”, “really good lesson”, “nice, spacious dance floor”. To those who thought the room got a little hot… try visiting the patio for fresh and cool air! Seriously, I did talk to the Legion about cranking up the A/C so next Monday will be cooler. However, a lot of us absolutely appreciate the summer heat. Let's enjoy it when we can because winter will be back soon enough! As expected, the Port Credit Royal Canadian Legion is turning out to be the perfect venue. Here, we're dancing to hour heart’s content with a great sound system on a spacious hardwood floor. When you overheated souls are ready to cool down or have a quieter conversation, do so on the beautiful patio overlooking the Credit River. The Legion is licensed, has reasonably priced drinks, and warm, friendly servers. Parking is free, ample and safe. If you have attended my events at Azucar, Wild Wing or Toronto Harbour cruises, you already know what makes them so special. People dance for fun, not show. The crowd is open and friendly, so you will always get some dancing in and make new friends. As usual, the evening begins with a quality dance lesson, so if you are learning how to dance Bachata, it's perfect. I search out great dance instructors who are friendly, passionate about dance and effective in teaching you to quickly improve your moves. If you are a more advanced dancer, simply enjoy yourself with an excellent group of intelligent and fun-loving people. I am always impressed with how the more experienced dancers take the time to help the beginners improve more quickly. I want the Legion to become legendary as a relaxed, safe, warm place for quality people to meet and have some fun together, but I am going to need your help on this one. It is a substantially bigger dance floor and space than Wild Wing. For everyone who has sensed the spirit of my events, has made a new friend, danced the evening away, left at the end of the evening happier than when they arrived, I am counting on you. Come, bring your friends, and together we can make Miss Bachata an amazing and very special place to mix and mingle, the highlight of our week. A Personal Note from Anna I have a Masters Degree in Psychology from Europe, and I am a registered Life Coach in Canada. I observe that many people are now living their lives in isolation. They are so stressed out that they simply tune out at the end of the day, eat, watch TV, go to bed. They block out the importance of friends, a social network, human interaction, laughter, and simple fun. “Events by Anna G” are designed to change your life. I intentionally create venues where you immediately feel comfortable in a safe and non-salacious environment. I believe that diversity in people, location and music is positive and keeps my events fun and interesting. My dance lessons and social dancing give you an opportunity to meet intelligent and interesting people and very simply put more joy into your life. Taking action by starting something new, like dance, will open up a world of possibility for you. You meet people, move your body, interact, laugh, play, share. These small changes are a victory over feeling isolated and disconnected and will lead you into a greater sense of well-being… the champagne cork popping starts to the celebration of your life. Dancing is one excellent expression of that celebration. Come out! Join our very special group of people and enjoy the time life is rewarding you with. When you arrive, come find me. I will be more than happy to meet you, talk with you, and introduce you around.

What we're about

We are a group of active, energetic singles and couples... men and women who enjoy Latin dance (Salsa, Merengue, Cumbia, Bachata, Rumba, Cha Cha).

Our objectives? Firstly, we will schedule some great meetups around town focused on Latin dance (it is so much more fun to go as a group). Secondly, we will provide information on upcoming events in Toronto and surrounding areas so when you have the impulse to dance, with or without the group, the information you need is at your fingertips. Finally, we will identify dance training programs in the city, advantages, disadvantages, cost... so when you are ready to get more technical, the information is available for your analysis.

We hope to be able to negotiate some group and private lessons and gain access to the clubs without paying a cover charge or standing in line.

This group is open to people who enjoy Latin dance, whatever their skill level.

When you are looking for your Salsa FIX... here we are!
