Club Viva Dance
Club Viva Dance is one of Canadas top Dancesport studios. Our main dance floor features over 7,000 square feet of unobstructed dance space and a large, open viewing gallery. Dancers from our studio have been finalists on the hit TV show So You Think You Can Dance Canada 2008 and 2009, and have performed in the Dancing With The Stars Tour in Toronto. Our dancers also appeared in films and TV showcases including Breakfast Television, Jackie Chans Tuxedo, Cinderella Man starring Russell Crowe, and Take the Lead starring Antonio Banderas.
Established in November 2009, Club Viva Dance is a new entity in the Ballroom Dance/Dancesport scene in Canada; but far from new are the two, long standing and well established GTA Dance Studios which comprise its roots: the Viva Dance Studio established in Thornhill, Ontario since 1998 and the Dance With Us Studio, established in North York since year 2000.
New Owners, Sylvain & Tanya Cardinal (formerly Viva Dance), Inessa Strelnikova & Stanislav Kochergin (formerly Dance With Us), and Aigars Stolcers & Agita Baranovska, (former World Semi-Finalsts); all European trained dancers, world class competitors and well-honed dance Instructors/Choreographers and judges, are very excited about their new venture and promise to deliver the best of what Ballroom Dancing/Dancesport world has to offer.
As one of the biggest dance studios in the country, Club Viva Dance can now comfortably accommodate its twenty-plus instructors and its fast growing and active student body. The added space is a natural as a great practice space, a most suitable facility for special events, even championship status competitions if need be.
When complete with its two electrically controlled, movable divider walls, the 14,000 sq. ft. of dance space will be convertible into four separate dance floors each able to support dance activity different one from the other and going on at the same time on four different fronts.
One of these four spaces is permanently walled-off and currently provides the perfect area for small group classes and for our very busy, weekly childrens group lessons and private lessons program.
Club Viva Dance offers dance instruction and dance activity for everybody; all age categories from four to one hundred and four. Ballroom and Latin Dance lessons are available in both private lesson and group class, formats and also in International and Social styles.
Already planned at 4100 Chesswood Drive are monthly in-house competitions plus are four (open to the public) annual Pro-Am competitions baring the name The Four Seasons Challenge. The first of these competitions took place in March 2010.
There is also a full Night-Club Dancing Program made up of weekly private lessons, group classes and planned monthly, Friday evening Socials with DJ all to a Salsa dance beat plus the Merengue, Bachata, the Swing, the Hustle, etc. A cash bar is also available for snacks and refreshments.
With our twenty plus Instructors/Choreographers, and our great new facility, there is much to be learned, much fun to be had, with a built-in opportunity for exercise and enhanced physical conditioning.
