2016 Toronto Bachata and Kizomba Congress: September 3-4, 2016

This was our 2nd year providing both registered massage therapy (RMT) and chiropractic services at this latin dance congress in Toronto.  We had dancers who travelled from across Canada and the USA. The days were filled with dance workshops for salsa, bachata, kizomba and semba, and the nights were mixed with nightly performances and social dancing till 4am!  Both our RMT, Michelle, and our chiropractor, Dr. Lopes, were kept busy treating dancers and professional performers for all their aches and pains as they danced throughout the weekend.
