Abanico Latin Dance Academy has served Etobicoke, Toronto and the surrounding communities as the premier dance studio for Private 1:1 - Club Style and Ballroom dance lessons and Group classes

 

You can experience dancing with us in our boutique studio, 1000-square-foot dance floor with an elite commercial sound system.

 

Our studio is located in the heart of Etobicoke, Village of Islington at the intersection of Bloor St. West and Cosmo Rd, 2 blocks west of the Royal York subway station. Both street and metered parking are available at the front and back of the building.

For your comfort we bring the lights down and introduce a club atmosphere to most of our classes so that we are infused with the real nightclub vibe.

We were so grateful to participate in the Dance Together Festival in 2021.  Thank you Katya Kuznetsova for such an incredible day! We danced Bachata with Claudia, shimmied to a Latin Fusion piece with Adri and watched a Cuban Casino Rueda team do a demonstration. The Park was packed and we finished off with a small "Dance Social" courtesy of DJ Apollo. Thank you to all the supporters, team members and enthusiasts who came out to support and participate.
