No style of dance is quite as sexy and alluring as salsa. A musical fusion of Latin American cultures, salsa as a dance form is simply sensuous in every respect and watching a performance only makes you wish you could move your body like a salsa dancer.\nCome mid-May, you'll get the chance to learn (or at least watch the salsa pros do their thing) during the 12th annual Montreal Salsa Convention, a downtown festival devoted to all-things salsa.\nOver the course of Victoria Day weekend, Montreal will become a mecca for salsa during the 5-day festival. So much salsa will be packed into the event, with free dance classes, mind-shattering performances, and competition showcases all to be experienced, with more on the set-list.\nIf you've ever wanted to salsa dance, this is probably your best chance, as world-renowned performers will be in the city to help you hone your skills at special workshops. Of course, dancing isn't for everyone, but the festival's salsa-spectacles will be more than worth to attend the event.\nThe Montreal Salsa Convention will begin on May 18th and run 'til May 22nd. For more details and a full listing of events at the festival, head over to the official website.\nAnd if you just can't wait until then to get your salsa groove on, Espace des Arts hosts a weekly salsa party every Thursday.
