Toronto! Get Your Keys To The Dance Studio


Toronto! I just wanted to write a short post & share my excitement about what’s about to happen.

In case you didn’t know, building a dance studio in Toronto is a huge task, and a pricey one. Toronto is definitely one of the most expensive cities in life. Yes, it’s true! And that’s not good news…

Some Battles Are Worth Fighting For!

But that won’t stop me from giving back to the community what’s absolutely needed- a dance space where regular people can make friends, have fun, and of course, get funky.

That right there, is totally worth the fight!

Imagine a dance studio that’s not pretentious. Picture an safe environment that welcomes and encourages total newbies to incorporate dance in their lives.

A place where everyone is treated with equal respect, regardless of who you are or what you do. It’s astonishing how that simple right to respect can be lacking sometimes. Don’t you agree?

We’re all here to dance! And learn, and grow!

And It Gets Even Better…

But that’s not all… Trained, experienced dancers can still get involved and continue to be challenged, motivated and inspired to love life.

In fact, I’m teaching hip hop dance classes soon after I write this, for beginners AND trained dancers. Awesome classes just like we had last night, and last week, and the week before that…

It’s already BEEN happening! And it can’t stop, won’t stop, anytime soon.

But building this new dance studio in Toronto will start a NEW movement. BTW, it is right in the heart of downtown Toronto, easily accessible by transit no matter where you come from, but more on that later…

Right now, I’m laying the solid foundation for a brand new outlook that will benefit us all. It’s time for a new home!

Finally, The Day Is Coming…

The time to take possession is finally here! I’m so excited and want to share this joy with you. And everyone is welcome. In fact, the key is yours to keep. =)

Stay tuned for more. I’ll let you know when it’s time to move in!
