Winter 2018 : Course Calendar

Welcome - Bonjour - Fáilte

Winter 2018 Registration open!

Welcome back! There's some exciting changes to the course sechedule for Winter 2018!

Classes have moved to Tuesday Evenings!

Each style of social dance, Swing/Latin, are only being held for 6 weeks each session — no more overlapping — to allow students to take both without cramming.

We are going back even closer to our roots. Classes are now 90 minutes long with a 30 minute social dance at the end of each class. This is a full extra hour of dancing, a week! This pace allows the classes to slow down a bit and cover more details as well as the 30 minute practice time to allow students to *actually practice* casually and socially the awesome dance moves they are learning.

WE HAVE MOVED!! We have relocated the classes from the 2nd Floor down into the Rust City Brewery main space. This gives us the freedom, as adults, to enjoy the licensed establishment atmosphere these social dances were created in.

The Ballroom, the Tap, Pilates and Children Classes are being postponed indefinitely. We have had tremendous issues trying to schedule them and with the relocation of the classes to the Brewery downstairs this schedule issue persists as well as not being the appropriate venue.

Check out our latest Course Calendar. Now celebrating our 22nd year of classes we continue to share our love of dance — which we believe is a celebration of joy — through our Swing Dance and Latin Dance Courses in beautiful Downtown Hamilton, Ontario.

Celebrating 21 years of classes

Known for our engaging and comprehensive approach to teaching, we have had so much fun sharing our passion of dance with literally tens of thousands of students, children to seniors, across Canada - we can't wait to share it with you! All the dance and fitness pictures here are us or our students, all the things we say here and in class are our words as we value integrity and authenticity while we develop a kinship with our devoted students regardless of their skill level or the mythical two-left-feet syndrome. Frankly, you join our courses to have fun, so enough chatting come dance with us!

studios1.ca was Initially created as an information centre for all the Swing Dance and Latin Dance Courses and Workshop details offered by Canadian choreographer Gabreïl Spiegelschrift. Since then studios1.ca has expanded its dance and fitness faculty to include leading dance, pilates and yoga instructors and associate artisans over the years as it has migrated to various cities including Montréal, Guelph and Toronto. More details of the 21 year journey.

NOTE: As a reminder we no longer manage regular scheduled classes in Montréal, Toronto or Guelph.
