Robson Square is where
many people in Vancouver
discover salsa for the
first time. Here's what
one salsa dancer says
about Robson Square:
wanted to say thanks to
you and the crew for putting
on the event. Robson Square
is how I got into salsa.
I remember walking by
on a warm summer night
two years ago and seeing
all these people stream
downstairs. I was stunned
to see the square lit
up all warm and gold and
all these people dancing.
I was so jealous that
I couldn't dance and that
encouraged me to get started.
Coming back these last
two weekends really made
it full circle for me
and I want to thank you
guys for introducing me
to salsa." (Edwin)
