15AUG17 – Flash Mob: It’s ON!

Ontario Place – specifically the newly-redeveloped eastern section of the park, with its views of the Toronto Skyline – will be our official Toronto location on the International West Coast Swing Flash Mob.

Facebook Event or see the calendar

Home Schoolers:  Please join us for the weekly Tuesday night rehearsals – for free!  You pay only for the weekly social dance practice that starts at 9:00 p.m. ($5), or stay for the 4×4 class 8:00-9:00 p.m. (just $15 including social).
Please note that we’re no longer teaching the choreography – simply running it for practice and cleaning up inconsistencies in execution and technique, and we will be rotating partners. As always, please BYOWB (Bring Your Own Water Bottle).  This is a high-energy routine and it’s super fun to be at this stage where we can really dance it!!

Call for Videographer (s):  Still looking for that special someone (or someones) to record and possibly edit our performance(s) to be submitted to the IFMWCS organizers in France.  If you know anyone who might be interested in this fun project, please hook them up!!

Preview and Westie Bomb:  Shelley Saxena/ShelleyDance will be featured at Dancing on the Pier on Thursday, August 31st, with student performances and a Flash Mob preview. See Calendar  We’re also planning on “Westie Bombing” the location this Thursday August 17th – social dancing to the R&B deejay scheduled to perform that night – to get a feel for the space to prepare for the August 31st Flash Mob preview. See here for more details.
