The eight annual Canada Salsa Congress brought not only amazing shows, workshops, bands, and dance parties to Toronto last weekend, but also a life-changing surprise for one astonished congress volunteer.
On Sunday night, organizer Jennifer Aucoin took the stage after her dance school’s amateur performance, bringing with her Master of Ceremonies Albert Torres. She wished to publicly say farewell to Dmitry Solodovnikov, one of her long time dancers, and to his girlfriend Annie, who was a volunteer at the Congress that night. The couple are planning to leave Canada to move to Hong Kong.
Little did Annie know when she was called to the stage that she would receive a marriage proposal, complete with ring, in front of the entire audience!
