At Bees’ Knees Dance we teach adults with absolutely no experience how to dance.

It’s our passion to teach adults their very first dance steps. We create a welcoming environment for complete beginners. We also offer dance lessons for people with some prior dance experience, but ultimately absolutely no experience is necessary. Really! All welcome!

Fondly known as The Hive, the studio is located conveniently at Yonge & Bloor and is truly a home for swing dancing, friendship and fun in Toronto.

Location: 750 Yonge St. just South of Bloor on the West side of Yonge St. right above The Shoe Company.

…or visit our friends at the Niagara Lindy Hop Club.
