Event description
We can't do "dance socials" right now but we want to host a virtual event where we can still dance and hang out together!

About this Event


		Steps Dance Studio: Dance & Chill - Virtual Event image

Steps Dance Studio will be hosting a dance & chill virtual event to provide something fun amidst the pandemic and social distancing rules!

Join our 2 hr event to meet other Torontonians virtually and also take a mini Bachata dance class together (30 min)! The guest host who will lead the games and social aspect will be Andrea Lo - the founder of Toronto Dating Hub.

The lesson is great for beginners but suitable for all levels / genders! No previous experience required.

You don't need a dance partner for this class. Bachata shines aka footwork combo can still be very sexy/suave! Check out these recent videos from Steps & Angelo our instructor, so you get an idea:

BONUS: All attendees (who have never attended a Steps class except the free trial) are eligible to purchase a 1 month unlimited membership pass for only $50.

FAQ’s:

Who should join? What if I've never danced or taken lessons?

  • If you're a beloved member of the Steps dance community - we MISS YOU and we want to connect with you again!
  • If you're tired of the same ol' Zoom meetings and looking for something social to do - you should come!
  • If you're interested in Latin dance, learning a new skill, or looking to make new friends - this is the event for you!

The dance portion is only 30 min and is perfect for all levels.

So is this a virtual event? How does it work?

  • Sign up for the class and we'll email you a link to the virtual event 1 day before.
  • During the event: We'll do an intro & icebreaker to warm up and then do a short dance lesson. Yes, cameras are optional but encouraged!
  • Throughout the event, we'll have games and icebreakers to keep you engaged and mingling with each other!
  • Have fun connecting!

What do I need?

  • A laptop + working camera (smartphone will NOT have the full experience)
  • Steady internet connection
  • Zoom installed on your laptop beforehand
  • Flat, comfortable surface
  • Room to move
  • Apparel - be comfy enough you can dance, but presentable - like you're going on a social with a dance floor!
  • Have a drink or two handy for the lesson & mingling after- whether that's water or a cocktail - or both!

Pricing:

Our events and dance classes aren't usually free but we wanted to give back to the singles & dance community so be sure to sign up while quantities last.

Why is there a cap on attendance?

For the best experience and a chance to "virtually meet" everyone - we need to make this a more intimate group setting. Please do not sign up and take up a spot if you don't think you'll make it.
