What Differentiates Us
At DanceStudios.ca, we lead, not follow. We deliver our services by listening to what our customer is telling us. With innovative programs including Zumba and a variety of one-day crash courses, we respond by listening to our customers’ needs. With over 14 years as Ottawa’s premier Dance School, we pride ourselves in our many satisfied repeat customers. Our instructors are the best in the business, especially trained to teach.
Great dancers are not always great teachers. It takes the right attitude, patience, and respect to articulate dance instruction to one’s students. In addition to being veteran dancers, our instructors are skilled at the art of teaching through years of experience. Please come and meet our team.
With over 10,000 square feet of space, we offer two pristinely finished studios and a large ballroom for parties and events.
Our Commitment to You
Your satisfaction is our top priority. Thus our programs are designed with no long term contracts to lock you in. Come in and try a class as a walk-in (price ranges between $10-$18).
Group Dance Classes:
Group classes are perfect for new students learning basics and for experienced dancers looking for exciting new patterns. We offer a wide range of classes in a variety of styles and levels. No partner is required.
Private Dance Classes:
Private lessons are a valuable resource to all dancers. They allow you to learn at whatever pace is comfortable to you. One-on-one instruction provides detailed information that can help you work on a wide variety of technical concepts, such as lead, follow, connection, balance, and spins, that are difficult to perfect in a group format.
Is your First Dance causing you a little anxiety? Preparing for your "first dance" is a great way to surprise and entertain your guests on your wedding day. Enjoy a unique thrill as you sweep the dance floor during your first dance as husband and wife. We can teach you to dance to the wedding song of your choice, or we can suggest some traditional or contemporary wedding songs for you to try.
The perfect compliment to your group or private classes, the weekly parties allow you to practice all the new moves you’ve learned. The parties primarily consist of students just like yourself, with varying levels of expertise including many beginners.
Performance classes are a unique concept that originated here at Dance Stuios.Ca. Your instructor will choreograph and teach a routine designed for performance as a group. This allows dancers to take their dancing to the next level by learning material that is more complex as well as learning skills that make a good performer. After the routine is complete and rehearsed, the class will have the opportunity to perform at several occasions. Most performance classes are designed for intermediate to advanced level dancers unless otherwise specified.
A professional performer will come to your reception to do a show or to teach and assist your friends and family to get them all dancing! Many themes available from Big Band Swing and Belly Dance to Red Hot Salsa! Dance Studios.Ca Dancers are also available to provide entertainment and instruction at festivals, corporate functions, benefits, weddings and private parties. The entertainment can be tailored to any size and type of event. Dancers are a great addition to parties to create atmosphere and to energize and motivate guests.

What should I wear?
Please bring clean comfortable shoes to change into. Sandals, flip-flops, or socks without shoes will not allow you to get the best experience from the classes. Appropriate footwear includes sneakers, flat soft-soled dance shoes, or high-heeled dance shoes. NO shoes that have been worn outside are permitted in the dance studio in order to keep outside dirt and grit from damaging the floor. Please change shoes at the reception before entering the studio.

Do I have to sign long term contracts?
No. We do not have contracts or high pressure sales techniques. We pride ourselves in offering the highest quality instruction at the lowest possible price.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept cash and all major Credit Cards (sorry - no debit or cheques).
Do I need to pre-register?
We accept walk-ins, however pre-registration is recommended to ensure a spot is reserved for you. Please arrive 15 minutes early on your first day to handle the administration. To register, please call the studio at 613-884-9869 or email us at email@example.com
Do I need a partner?
No. In our group classes, we rotate partners frequently to get students comfortable with a variety of different people. At least half of our students are singles, both ladies and gentlemen. Although 90% of our couples find it beneficial to learn to dance with others, it is not mandatory to rotate partners.
