Latin Sparks began with just a few of us looking for a place to dance freely. We wanted something different. Not your typical nightclub. Apparently, thousands of people in Ottawa felt the same way. It started with one block, one speaker, and a couple dozen dance-loving friends. The word spread, the fun was contagious! Every year our family continues to grow. Latin Sparks is now one of the most anticipated summer festivals in Ottawa, attended by thousands.

Our  3 core principles we refuse to comprise:

Inclusivity

We bring together people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities (our events are wheelchair accessible). Latin Sparks is for anybody and everybody!

Dance-Centric

Social dancing at its best, invegorate, if you’re not sweating a bit, you ain’t doing it right!

Celebratory

We’re about celebrating Latin culture with all of its colour and life!
