About Us

BKS stands for Bachata, Kizomba, and Salsa. YXE means all of you crazy Saskatoonians! We are a diverse group of people with one huge thing in common: we love to dance!

“People can see how we love what we do. It is very contagious, you can’t ignore it, then you just want to be part of it.”

BKS YXE focuses on social dancing, which is an opportunity to meet other people, practice your dancing skills, and partake in the joy of movement and musical expression. Providing an inclusive and safe space is very important to us: we welcome all ages, races, body types, genders, sexual orientations, physical abilities, and cultural backgrounds.


We play primarily Bachata, Salsa and Kizomba, but you may hear some other musical styles depending on the event. We host a couple of weekly socials, to give you lots of opportunity to practice. When the weather is nice, one of those locations is the beautiful River Landing. If you are just learning, we are also happy to direct you to the local businesses that offer dance classes.

Let's Dance!

“Those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music”
