Holiday season is fast approaching, and with that comes a break for the dancers and the teachers! Our last week of classes is Dec 17 – Dec 20, with Christmas break beginning on Friday, December 21. We do not come back to dance until the second week of January. The first week back to dance classes is Jan 7 – Jan 10, and we begin with choreography!
We hope you have a fantastic break, rejuvenating for both mind and body. If you NEED to do something physical, try out something different than dance. Pilates, conditioning, yoga, or going for a swim are all great ways to keep the body moving while still letting it recuperate from the stresses of dance. Take care and relax!
Dance Alive Studios and Dance Culture by Bri are joining forces this holiday season to bring you a combined Holiday Party at the Underground Cafe on Friday, December 14 from 6:00 pm to 12:00 am. This is a fully licensed venue with both appetizers and meals available for order, so bring your money and your appetites!
There is limited space for this event so we ask that you please RSVP “Attending” to the link below if you’d like to attend. If you RSVP with “Interested”, a space will not be reserved for you, but you will continue to receive event updates. For the time being, this is a child-free event and we also ask that you only bring one guest at most to begin with to allow more room for other dancers to attend. If we have lots of space still closer to the event, we will open it up for more friends!
Spots will be given on a first come, first serve basis. If you learn that you cannot attend, but have already RSVPed with “Attending”, please notify us as soon as possible so we can open up spots for more party-goers. Dance Alive Studios and Dance Culture reserve the right to charge for no-shows on the night of the event.
There is no entrance fee for this event, but if you’d like to help with the cost of the venue rental, a suggested contribution of $10 per person would be greatly appreciated.
Hope to see you there!
On Sunday, November 11, we honour those that have given their lives and their loved ones to defend the world we live in.
The studio is still open with regular classes running the following observed stat holiday, Monday, November 12.
Lest we forget.
Halloween is fast approaching and we like being festive every now and again. Many adult dancers have old dance costumes, so we want to extend the invitation to “dress up” during Halloween week of classes at Dance Alive. From Monday October 29 to Thursday November 1, feel free to wear a costume to dance (provided it is something you can move easily in, old dance costumes are the best). We will have class as normal but can make take some pictures at the end if anyone’s wearing anything fun!
To continue the celebration, we would like to encourage anyone who’s interested to go with their classmates for a drink or a bite after their class. Teachers can join at the end of the night when they are finished teaching. Listed below are some convenient close-by restaurants based on studio location for the evening:
Monday & Wednesday – Piper Rose Studios (Quebec Ave)
Birmingham’s on Circle Dr & Millar Ave
Tuesday – Sask Pole & Dance Studio (Duchess St)
Earl’s on 2nd Ave & Queen St
Thursday – Dance Culture (Stonebridge)
Shoeless Joe’s in the same parking lot
Looking forward to a SPOOKY week at Dance Alive Studios!

There is only one week left of summer classes with Dance Alive. The dates and times of last classes are listed below:
Mon Aug 13 — Beginner Adult Tap, Adult Hip Hop (6:00 – 8:00 pm)
Tue Aug 14 — Pilates, Nov/Int Adult Ballet and Pointe (6:00 – 9:30 pm)
Thu Aug 16 — Pilates, Adv Adult Pointe and Ballet (6:30 – 10:00 pm)
Mon Aug 20 — Experienced Adult Tap, Adult Jazz and Lyrical (6:00 – 9:00 pm)
This is your last chance to try out these classes for the summer. Don’t miss out!
There is an open invitation to anyone who wants to grab a bite or a drink nearby after any of these nights. Shoeless Joe’s or Brown’s Social House is a good option in Stonebridge, and we can decide on something that may be open closer to Quebec Ave on Monday nights (tentatively Birmingham’s). No pressure at all, just a casual opportunity to visit with dance friends and meet some new ones to wind up the summer schedule!
After Aug 20, there will be a two week break from Aug 21 – Sep 3. Regular Season classes will begin on Tuesday September 4, after the long weekend.
Thanks for enjoying summer-time dance with us 🙂
