(TORONTO, ON) July 3, 2020 – More than ever this summer, we are all ready to put on our dancing shoes and #KeepDancing! The Canadian Salsa Festivals Project (CSFP) and TLN TV have once again joined forces with TD Group to present the first ever virtual TD Salsa in Toronto TV and digital event experience. This year`s festival will be broadcast nationally on TLN TV and streamed worldwide on tln.ca on Saturday, July 18th at 6P/et and Sunday, July 19th at 7P/et.

Amidst the cancellation of most of Toronto’s summer festivals due to COVID-19 safety restrictions, Canada’s biggest celebration of Latin culture is bigger than ever! TD Salsa in Toronto is committed to keeping Canadians across the country connected through Latin music, art and of course mucho dancing!

The virtual salsa party will be hosted by TLN TV personality Camila Gonzalez and Ivan Wanis-Ruiz, who is no stranger to the TD Salsa in Toronto festivities. The vibrant virtual lineup will feature musical performances with some of Canada`s best Latino artists, salsa class instructions, Latin art exhibits, cultural parade features and of course non-stop dancing for the entire family!

The special broadcast will also include VIP guests, from Toronto Mayor John Tory showcasing his salsa moves, to celebrity shout-outs as well as sizzling Latin cuisine segments with TLN TV celebrity chefs preparing authentic flavours.

To kick-off this year’s digital festival experience, long-time partner and festival broadcaster TLN TV is hosting a social media contest designed to inspire everyone to #KeepDancing during these unprecedented times. Canadians nationwide are invited to post a video of their salsa moves on Instagram for a chance to be featured in the national TV broadcast on TLN TV. For more details, visit the @tlntv IG account.
