Welcome 2020!

Posted on December 29, 2019 12:12 AM 

One more year gone and another one approaching. Excited about what new possibilities will 2020 bring! We added hip-hop in 2019 and New Year will have another new class of contemporary dance. danceShala is constantly growing and evolving every year.

Dance is an expression of the inner soul. We are happy to be spreading the extreme joy in the lives of our students. Here is a reflection of that in the pictures from our last recital.

Goodbye 2018!

Posted on December 31, 2018 6:35 PM

The last day of 2018 is the time for reflection. What were the accomplishments in the whole year for danceShala? 

Our students performed in Carassauga and Toronto International Youth Dance Festival. Our teachers performed at Mississauga City Hall for Mayors from across Canada.

We conducted numerous Bollywood Dance workshops in Peel schools and our Annual Recital "Rhythm of Roots 2018" became a hit. We surpassed our own expectations! For the first time, we used a background screen during performances.

Dance is not just a rhythmical movement of the body, it is a source of pure joy. Our objective for 2019 is to spread this message to as many people as we can reach. We will add more classes, more teachers, more genres, and more students.
