  About SalsaVancouver.net  
     
 

SalsaVancouver.net was established in 2005 by Stephen and Jennifer Dancey to provide comprehensive information on salsa dance classes and social dance events in Vancouver. We run two dance studios, the Dancey Ballroom and Dance Studio (located at 505 Hamilton Street) and the new D2 Dance Studio (located at 55 West 8th Ave), where we offer dance classes with some of Vancouver's best instructors as well as weekly social dance events.

 

We also organize special events such as Sunday Afternoon Salsa at Robson Square, an annual series of free salsa dances held outdoors in downtown Vancouver every summer which has grown to become one of Vancouver's annual summer festivals. And we organize fundraiser events which strengthen community partnerships for the salsa dance community, including our annual Salsa For The Kids Fundraisers for The KidSafe Project Society.
