RE_OPENING NEWS:
We are very gradually making plans to re-open. Now that we are in stage 3 of re-opening, the government is allowing Dance Studios to re-open slowly with very specific guidelines.
Our main priority now is to finish the remaining classes from the sessions that got interrupted last March due to COVID-19.
For those that were registered in the February session of classes may remember that there are two classes remaining from the session that started the week of February 17th.
We will be offering those two remaining classes in the last the week of August 24th and the week of August 31st with specific guidelines listed below.
We will also be offering two TANGO technique classes on Saturday August 29th and Saturday September 5th at 2-3pm .

The TANGO TECHNIQUE class will be limited to 15 students and requires pre-registration. You will need to register in advance so we know the exact the number of people that are attending. If you want to register, you can send an e-transfer of $15 to info@rhythmandmotion.ca if password is needed, please send it to me.

MANDATORY GUIDELINES for opening:

Classes will be open for couples only. There will be no rotation of partners. The current guidelines state that dancers have to choose a partner and stay with that partner for the duration of the course. If you have no partner, you can dance on your own and work on your technique. If that’s not an option for you please email us and we can give you a credit for the two remaining classes. Unfortunately, no volunteer partners can be provided at this time. If you are in contact with anyone from your class and feel comfortable please try to contact each other to find a partner to participate with in the classes.
Masks will be required when inside the studio. Anyone without a mask will not be allowed in the studio, by law.
We ask that all students use hand sanitizer before entering class.
Social distancing of 2m will be in effect between couples, in the dance area as well as the reception area.
Common areas will be sanitized on a regular basis. We understand that many of you will be glad to connect with classmates after such a long time but because of the new procedures we ask that after your class you clear the studio ASAP and socialize outside so we can sanitize the studio before letting the next class in. Classes might have to be shortened by a few minutes and might start with a few minutes delay. We ask for your understanding and thank you in advance for your cooperation as we figure out the new protocols and procedures. We are all in this together.

For TANGO classes…. if you don’t have a partner we are offering you the option of taking two technique classes on the Saturdays instead of your regular group class.
Please let us know in advance if you are going to attend the technique class, even if you are attending them in place of the two group classes.

Here is the schedule of classes for the week of August 24th and August 31st.

I waited as long as possible to make this difficult decision....but considering the current world situation due to Covid-19 it is with much regret and a very heavy heart that I must announce the CANCELLATION of the TORONTO TANGO FESTIVAL 2020 😥
Tango is on a BIG Pause, like everything else all over the world.
But I look forward to an extra BIG celebration at the Toronto Tango Festival in June 2021!
In the meantime keep the LOVE AND PASSION FOR TANGO in your hearts and lets hope we can all dance together very soon ❤️❤️❤️
