UPDATE APR 15, 2022

So places are cautiously starting to open.

The Provincial Health Officer for BC surprised us by removing much of the health mandates with no warning earlier in the year.

This is exciting! Though we are now caught in a scheduling conflict with all the plans we had implemented for the first half of 2022 to make up for the cancellations back in December.

After much debate and countless attempts to work things out we realize we cannot start classes until the Autumn.

Thank you for your continued patience - we know it is tuff & your support has been awesome. Please contact us if you like to have us notify you when the details are sorted out.

MEGA THANKS - gabby

about studios1.ca

Check out our latest Course Calendar. Now celebrating 26 years 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 New Westminster and Vancouver, as well as Burnaby, Surrey, and Coquitlam, BC.

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!
