Salsa around the world

The World

Infomation about Latin music and dance in other parts of the world - This information that has been sent to me, or I have found on the WEB. It refers generally to places where one would have to search for a place to dance or play, not somewhere where it was commonplace. If you have a favorite local club or venue, please let me know and I can publicise it - I'm always getting requests. For more details try the on-line sources section

Toronto, Canada
Penny from Toronto writes
" I am living in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Latin dancing is becoming very popular here with many clubs giving free classes before the club opens. There are regular classes as well, offering the different levels of instruction. I have taken classes (salsa, meringue etc.) with Alberto Gomez at La Classique.
Other Latin Clubs here are El Rancho, Flamingo, Berlin has salsa night on Tuesdays and Ivory has a latin night on Wednesdays. Those are just a few."

Jenny Ketcham writes from DC "All my favorite ones are there [Adams-Morgan.], most of them smaller and less "disco-ey" than Diversite and Bravo-Bravo. The best, to my mind is Habana Village Cafeon Columbia Road near 18th (second floor), and I've had good reviews on Latin Jazz Alley, also on Columbia, closer to 17th. Feel free to give my name and
email address to anyone looking for their DC Salsa connection."
