I am so confused with all the latin bands playing around toronto. Does anyone have a comprehensive list of all the events happening this summer? There is so much and I keep hearing about these events after the fact and I don't want to miss anymore.

Looking forward to a great list somewhere Smile

Alright: I am so excited over Salsa on St Clair! Last year was so much fun - although CRAZY hot - I worked off all the Latin food I ate though dancing up a storm. Last year I saw so many Toronto Dance SAlsa students there. Hopefully you can send out the info again so everyone goes and we have lots of people to dance with.

Yes I have gone into tosalsa.com but they rarely update that website anymore. salsato.com is better as it is updated more regularly and has all different kinds of events.

Does anyone know if there is a salsa band playing at the Yonge Street Festival this weekend? I went last year when I didn't know how to dance and there was one so maybe they'll do the same this year? Interested in knowing???
