About this event


		Steps Dance Studio: Dance Social in the Park image

Steps Dance Studio will be hosting a dance social in-person event to provide something fun amidst the pandemic and social distancing rules!

Join our 2.5 hr event to meet other Torontonians and also take a mini Bachata dance class together (45 min-1 hr)! 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. You will be able to shadow/box dance - you face a partner and are 6 ft apart and won't need to connect/touch.

This event is open to all ages - singles or couples!

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.

What do I need?

  • Apparel - be comfy enough you can dance, but presentable - like you're going on a social with a dance floor!
  • Flat shoes - we will be at the park so be comfortable to dance!
  • Bring your own water/drink & snacks as needed
  • Picnic blanket / camping chair for your own seating

Pricing:

Early bird tickets are $5 and regular price is $10. We hope to see 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 connect with 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.
