We are always amazed by the turnout at the exciting Salsa Convention every year in Montreal! This annual event aims to promote Latin music, dance, and culture and features incredible showcases, competitions, and workshops with some of the most well known salsa dancers in the world.
Happening at Complexe Desjardins in downtown Montreal and in its 13th year, this festival brings over 5000 dance students and artists to the Montreal area to celebrate everything that is salsa culture and life!
Some of the big name international artists we’re excited to see include Carine Morais & Rafael Barros, Adrianita Avila & Jeferson Benjumea, Jhesus Aponte, Joel Masacote & Ana Masacote, Tito Ortos & Tamara Livolsi, and Anya Katsevman. These are some big names in the salsa world and we can’t wait to see them dazzle as they take to the floor.
There are also a number of free workshops for students to attend, and lots of exciting other performances and competitions – including Pro-Am, Pro Team, Amateur, and solo competitions in all styles of Latin dance!
Check out the Salsa Convention website for more information on the event and be sure to stop by the iLoveDanceShoes booth when you’re there! We’ll be answering questions about our custom dance shoes all weekend!
