What happened to Cat’s Corner?

As we hear more talk of reopening this summer, you may be wondering if and when you’ll be able to come back for a dance at Cat’s Corner. Well dear friends, we won’t be going back, only forward. And yes, there will be dancing in our future!

After 12 years up on the 3rd floor of 3451 Boul Saint Laurent, we have handed back the keys and closed an important chapter in the story of swing dancing in Montreal.

It is also the start of a new one!

In the summer 2021: in person classes and a new space

In June, we start our outdoor programming. Our weekly meetups in the Lafontaine Parc were very popular last year. So we’re back at it!Thursday Jazz Dance (solo) and Saturday Lindy Hop & co (partnered). Those evenings often ended with a spontaneous picnic. You are warmly invited. We can’t wait to see you all!

Starting June 15th, it is also the beginning of a long awaited partnership with a well loved community organization in Pointe St Charles (métro Charlevoix) : Share the Warmth. We are very excited to start building solid relationships in this community and we invite you to join us in this process.We will be dancing in their gorgeous space on Tuesdays for 2 dance classes/week.

It’s also time to enjoy our last month at our beloved studio on the 3rd floor of 3451 bld St Laurent.Come visit us in June to say hi, say bye, practice, take a private lesson with Majiza, rent our space one last time. The garage sale is still going. Come buy a couch. We’ll give you a good price! 🙂Email us at info@catscorner.ca

A living dance studio and community

Our mission

A living dance. A living studio.
A living community.

In our collective mind’s eye, we see a place that is home to a vibrant and continuously evolving swing dance community.

A place where generations meet, relationships are built, energies are exchanged, history is preserved and created anew.

A place where passion for swing dance is born, is nurtured and where people are encouraged to reach new heights of self-expression.

A place where we are kind to ourselves and kind to one another as we evolve and grow.

We see a thriving, socially responsible, sustainable business that provides the opportunities for people to be what they love, according to their abilities, talents and needs. A living dance. A living studio. A living community.
