Open House • January 7 & 8, 2017

Robson Square Summer 2016

We took a chance and experimented with two Saturday nights at the wonderful Robson Square. We wanted to see if we could bring people from different groups together and have them enjoy dancing.  We had younger & older, locals & tourists, & many ethnicities represented.  It worked.  They danced!  We had fun.  There will be more.

 

Brazilian Dance Your Pants Off Workshops

In this fast-paced and fun day, we learned the basics of three Brazilian dances: ZOUK, SAMBA, & FORRO. 3 hours of workshops and then some practice left everyone happy and exhausted!

Dance Your Pants Off Workshops

The first in a long series of workshops, Sam’s intensives are different than other schools.  Sometimes, the focus is strictly on technique to improve form.  Sometimes, we will introduce a brand-new dance to Vancouver.  Sometimes, we will offer something specific that we don’t teach in-depth in our regular classes, like body isolations and musicality.

 

 

Grand Opening Party

Sam’s officially opened our new concept dance school and social experiment to Vancouver and the world with three studios, each playing a different style of music, plus demonstrations of Zouk, Samba, and West Coast Swing.

Dance in Transit

Sam’s is conducting an ongoing Dance in Transit Project to introduce dance to people on the skytrain, in stations, and on the street.  This is spontaneous and outrageously fun.  If you see us and hear us some day, join us for a few minutes of movement and music.  It’ll add some spice to your day!  LIKE us on Facebook to find out when our next Dance in Transit event is happening.

 

First Week of Free TASTER classes at Carousel Theatre

In our very first week ever, Sam’s offered FREE TASTER classes in Salsa, Bachata, Zouk, Tango, and West Coast Swing. This was the introduction of Sam’s unique methodology and atmosphere to Vancouver.

Picnic Pavilion Event Granville Island

The first in an upcoming series of dance socials, we danced Zouk, Salsa, Bachata, and Kizomba in this amazing outdoor space in the heart of Granville Island.  Watch our website and Facebook page for more of these FREE events in the summer months.  Sam’s will be all over the city dancing our pants off!
