Dance Teq celebrates 20 years on Nov 2!

For the past two decades Dance Teq has been a home to dancers in Toronto and beyond, providing outstanding dance training for dancers aged 16 to Dorothy!

No matter where, Dance Teq has always been a welcoming studio for dancers of all levels to train and have fun. A warm thank you to all the teachers and musicians for the tremendous classes over the years.

A special thank you and congratulations to Kevin Pugh who founded the studio in 1997, and whose teaching has inspired dancers to go beyond what they thought capable—no exceptions!
