YES, you too can dance!

Our wonderful Dance Masters dance studio (DMDS) is an independently owned and operated dance school for students looking to explore a passion for dance and to take their training to the next level. Whether you are a complete beginner who feels nervous on the dance floor, or a seasoned dancer desiring more refinement, we are here for you.

 

We have classes for kids, adults and seniors alike, with no experience or partners required to enjoy our many classes.

 

We are beyond proud that many of our Dance Masters students describe their classes as a "dream come true" stating "I never thought I could do this, and now I'm doing it!"

With over two decades of professional dance experience, our studio offers students in Vaughan and surrounding areas outstanding opportunities to learn from the best, meet like-minded people, feel safe and comfortable and most importantly have fun!

 

We offer social dance classes (Salsa, Bachata, Argentine Tango, etc), and competitive classes (Ballroom, Latin and Hip-hop) offered to kids as young as 3 years, and older adults as mature as 103 years.  

All tutelage is done by fully qualified dance educators with award-winning backgrounds: Canadian Champions, Professional World Finalists and Blackpool starlets.


We have been chosen as a leading Dance school in the GTA for Wedding choreographies, events, social classes and technical training! 

Join our diverse family, and make friends for a life-time.

"FIRST DANCE" CHOREOGRAPHY

TOP RATED #1 WEDDING DANCE
CHOREOGRAPHERS IN THE GTA

Your First Dance is truly a memorable journey. We say 'journey' because at Dance Masters we specialize in story-telling through dance. Your unique story, how you met, how you interact with eachother, it will all be displayed in your special choreography. You choose the music, and we take care of the rest.

 

Some couples have trouble finding the perfect tune for this monumental moment - we can help. The Key? It has to be authentic to you, so don't Michael Buble when you want to Bon Jovi - stay true to your unique love story!

 

The First Dance does not have to be a slow dance. It can be a remix of Bachata and Tango, a fun jumpin' jive, a sensual Rumba, or dynamic Viennese Waltz. You will discover a world of opportunities here to create a spectacle your audience will love, and most importantly you both will enjoy!

*Also available: Father-Daughter, Mother-Son dances & Wedding Party flash mob-style.

We love coming here! My daughter does ice dance with her partner. We have been training with Maria to work on form, position and expression. The improvement we are seeing is incredible. Maria’s dedication and passion for dance is 2nd to none. She puts her students first and pulls so much out of them to help them exceed and surpass their goals. Highly recommend!!

Julia, Mother of Francesca

My daughter has been attending Dance Masters latin dance classes with Maria Shalvarova for the past 7 years since she was 4 years old.  Maria is an amazing teacher! She is demanding yet kind, is exceptionally strong technically, and loves her students. She always strives to make her students to always perform at their personal best. My daughter has participated in a number of competitions and won medals, continues to improve and most importantly, latin dance has helped her grow to be a confident, expressive, lovely young girl who is outgoing, loves to dance and perform.  As a parent  I also love the comraderie  at the school.  The students are friendly and helpful to each other and always celebrate each others success and achievements.  There is no place like Dance Masters! Maria is amazing! and you should see her move. Her dancing is breathtaking!

Mammone Sisters, Social Dancers

My sisters, brother and cousin decided to dedicate our summer to learning Salsa. Choosing Dance Masters was the best freaking decision we ever made! We were all beginners, and by the end of the summer, Maria instilled enough confidence and choreography to allow us to go social dancing! Maria is patient, down to earth, and makes each class so much fun. Make sure to bring 100% of your effort and passion for dance because she expects nothing less. Totally recommend.

Liora, Latin Dance Student

Maria and Edgars class is great. Being in their classes i can honestly say that They are both wonderful instructors who really care for their students. They both teach very well and make sure that all students are on the same page when it comes to technique and learning the steps for a routine. They are very nice and their teaching makes the class fun, energetic and easy to learn and overall have a good time. It's a pleasure learning from them.
