We are currently offering a limited selection of classes online. When provincial health measures are lifted for in-person group fitness and dance classes, we will be eager to resume immediately. You may enroll for our current and future classes, including drop-ins, at sugarswing.com/register. Dance socials are not offered right now as well. When we see restrictions eased, we will definitely start running them again! …
Ever notice how you just get up and start dancing to your favourite tunes? Or been to a concert and got the urge to start jumping? Have you ever felt enthralled by a memorizing dance video? It’s amazing what power that music has over us, where we just feel swept away and need to start dancing!
We are here to help you learn a few new cool steps, and discover a new style of dance that catches your eye. Most importantly, we are here to make it FUN! With that in mind, you will find that our instructors are the top rated in the city. We have a high regard for a supportive and safe dancing environment, caring teachers and staff, and great music. Being beginner-friendly, socializing and community is integral to who we are, and we believe dancing should perfectly combine incredible music, art, and a fun atmosphere. Come join us!
Things we do
We offer a variety of classes including House, African, Caribbean, Jazz, and Afrobeats. We are known best for our Tap classes and Swing classes, with our beginner series for Swing, Tap, and Sweetheart Swing being quite popular. In general, we follow the lineage of Jazz style dances (Tap and Swing) to African, and into urban styles like House. We honour the origins of each dance form we have expertise. We give our gratitudes and respect to the many Black American pioneers who developed these dances, some of whom we’ve been privilege to worked with.
We also host weekly swing dance socials. Our dancers in Mad Cat Swing teach and perform throughout the city. The space we lease may also be rented, as it is quite fitting for weddings, parties, and special events.
