Salsa @ City Hall is a free weekly Latin dance event happening on Wednesday evenings in July and August at the Ottawa City Hall.

We are outdoors, on the Rink of Dreams, if the weather is good, and indoors, in Jean Pigott Place, otherwise.

Dance lesson + social dancing

Each evening starts with an absolute beginner dance lesson from 6pm to 7pm. Come discover salsa, bachata, kizomba or zouk and learn from Ottawa’s best Latin dance instructors! All lessons are for absolute beginners – no dance experience needed! – and you don’t need to bring a partner.

From 7pm to 11pm, we open up the floor to social dancing. Show off your new moves to music selected by the best Latin DJs and meet Ottawa’s friendly Latin dance community!

Special treats

To spice things up, we will have special guests every week –  get ready for live music by Latin bands and singers, dance shows by local dance troupes, food vendors that will give you a taste of Latin America, and more fun surprises!


Salsa @ City Hall is brought to you by a team of dedicated volunteers, in collaboration with the City of Ottawa and some of Ottawa’s favourite Latin Dance Schools:
