About the Instructor

Shereen Ladha is a professional dancer, choreographer, artist, instructor, and movement director based in Toronto. She is the director of the viral YouTube channel 'dancewithSL' that features Bollywood, Classical Indian, and modern styles (and was even used by Apple in their most recent ads!) Shereen has been named Google Canada/YouTube's Next 15 Canadian Stars on the rise, FLARE Top 100 Canadian women with cool jobs and CBC Canada’s top female artists.

Shereen has also been profiled by BuzzFeed, the Globe and Mail, Huffington Post, CTV, CBC, Breakfast Television, and Strategy Magazine for her work.

Shereen was a finalist on Canada’s Got Talent with her former team Broken Dance. DancewithSL is also the creative force behind several YouTube viral videos including viral sensation 'Maafi' - the Bollywood cover of Justin Bieber's 'Sorry,' the hit touring stage shows 'Roots: A Journey Through India' and 'Rihla: From Roots to Dreams,' and exhibits like TIFF Bell Lightbox’s Picture Palace and Nuit Blanche Toronto.

Accessibility The Yonge Street Entrance is accessible and has an automatic door opener and lift.

Scent-Reduced Environment To help share the air, community classes promote a scent-reduced environment. Many people have chemical and scent sensitivities, which can cause mild to severe physical reactions. Please help reduce the use of scented products in class.

Waiver and Rules & Regulations All participants are required to sign the class waivers as part of the Eventbrite registration form before participating. Click here to view the TO Live Community Class Rules & Regulations.

No-Show Attendance Policy 5 minutes prior to the class start time, if there are any no-shows from the original reserved participants, those spots will be filled on a first-come first-served basis by drop-in participants. Please let us know as soon as possible if you know in advance you have to cancel your participation. If you are a no-show (without advance communication) for any three TO Live community classes, this forfeits your ability to pre-register for future classes.
