Thank you everyone who attended the joyous celebration of dance cultures, communities of unity @ The Continental Dance Club for YEAR6 UNESCO International Dance Day events at 3141 Wharton Way, Mississauga last evening!


Dance highlights including a lively furiously precise fast number to start the evening by the award-winning Academy of Serbian Folk Dancing with six of their absolute best led by Neven Micac with a bang before a funky CONGA4ALL line ending in a great photo op captured by the amazing Angel Torres! THE EVENING BEGAN AS IT ENDED: WITH YOU. THANK YOU Pollyanna Blanco for your testimonial words of thanks and appreciation of the (re-)birth of creativity and for for joining me welcoming our patrons in a closing meditative caping participation message and explosively beautiful closing tableau.

TANGO ARGENTINE at The Continental Dance Club!

Special event guests included GIMPEX owners also known as The “Lagerfelds” Karl & Roswitha … and a very emotional return to The Continental Dance Club of dear friends Claire Mohammed & Fanny D’Ospina who so elegantly welcomed guests.

Patrons can look forward to television spots running early 2020 promoting the culture of dance, events, culture and more at The Continental Dance Club.
