I've been with TDS for about 2 years now, and have danced with other groups as well. I have come to observe that there is something really great about the culture at Toronto Dance Salsa that is like no other. For one, there is no pretense. Everyone is super friendly, very encouraging, open and fun to hang out with. I just love the positive attitudes that the helpers bring to the group and also the enthusiasm from the students. I haven't found that this is the case in all dance schools. I mean there are a LOT of great instructors in Toronto who are very skilled at teaching and performing on the dancefloor...but there is just something very special about the vibe of TDS that makes it enjoyable to be a part of.
Has anyone else noticed this? What's your favourite thing about TDS?

Hey Kim,
Cool topic! My favourite thing about TDS is the fact that we specialize in people with absolutely NO background in dance and those who think have two left feet. By the end of a single semester, they all dance and joing the salsa community. My favourite thing about TDS is the fact that it is NOT exclusive the salsaholics, but the creating salsaholics. It is a company that specializes in making it fun, social and super laid back so people can feel comfortable on the dance floor, before they can express themselves to perfection.

Dance away TDS!

What's the deal, salsa people? My favourite thing about TDS is the laid-back, down to earth, fun, and non-judgemental atmosphere. Whether it's in class or at an outing, it's always fun. My biggest thrill is seeing new people at the outings, especially from the classes I help out at. Holla back at ya boy!

My favorite thing about TDS is its number of students. No other Salsa school in Toronto has as many students as TDS has. Thatís why TDS associate will always find out somebody to hang out or dance with whichever salsa club of Toronto he/she goes. One will never feel lonely in TDS.

I concur. What I most love about TDS are the people and the relaxed friendly atmosphere. Everyone is helpful and excited about dancing. I also love the diversity of personalities and styles on the dance floor at the TDS outings.

See you on Feb 29 at Plaza!!!

This is all music to my ears - thanks so much for these wonderful posts! That is exactly what we try to instill in the company....comfortable, fun and friendly. This is the place where you make friends (for life hopefully!), find your inner dance fiend and hopefully really grow as a person.

Glad to hear people love the culture - it makes the 12hr days worth it!!!

The number of amazingly fun and happy people at TDS is what makes it for me. I know the helpers have a competetive streak when we get together for a fun games night; but, when it comes to dancing everyone is supportive. It's just fun!

RIght on Kimberly! I love TDS most because of all the friends I've made through it. The TDS culture certainly has a very positive vibe that makes everyone feel welcome and comfy. I especially love how Sharon and Evan, and all the helpers make each excursion such a blast.
