We are reopen and offering more and more things each week this summer! Stage 3 of Alberta’s reopening has launched. Social dances are beginning this July, with more classes being offered this late-July and early-August including our regular Swing 1 through Swing 3. During the summer we will be observing measures like attendance caps, waivers/contact tracing, increased ventilation, more surface sanitization. These temporary measures will relax somewhat when we fully ramp up in September. Check out sugarswing.com/register, for our classes and dance social tickets. …
We’re here to get people together, partying to great tunes, and dancing some sweet moves! We want to help you learn a few new cool steps, and discover new styles of dance that catches your eye. Most importantly, we are here to make it FUN!
You will find that our instructors are experienced and reliable. We have a high regard for a supportive and safe dancing environment, caring teachers and staff, musicians and great music. Being beginner-friendly and inclusive is integral to who we are, and thus socializing and being part of a community is truly important to us too. Come join!
Things we do
We offer a variety of classes including House, Jazz, Tap and Swing. We are known best for Swing and Tap, with our level 1 classes 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, several of whom we’ve brought in to Edmonton 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.
