Toronto Social Dance School's instructors teach students with all kinds of dance experience, ranging from beginners who have never set heeled foot to hardwood to seasoned dancers looking to learn a new style. The instructors must complete a rigorous training program before they can teach, so they are well-versed in a variety of dancing styles. They can teach students traditional ballroom and social dance routines and how to have fun doing the merengue, hustle, and waltz.
To ensure that each dancer gets the most out of private or group classes, teachers have friendly consultations with new students to determine their previous dance experience and evaluate their current skill level. This meet and greet helps the staff place students in classes full of dancers of similar abilities before teaching them to swing hips in a salsa class or toe-tap during a swing session. Regardless of what style students choose, all lessons offer a supportive atmosphere that helps build confidence, tone bodies, and forge new friendships.
In addition to dance classes six days a week, Toronto Social Dance School also encourages students to practice their shuffling during weekly socials held every Friday and Saturday night.
