Dec 17th social dance cancelled

We have made the difficult decision to cancel the dance Friday December 17th, 2021. The newest restrictions go into effect Monday but we do not feel comfortable hosting a large event given the current epidemiological situation.

We are looking forward to hearing Andy King and his Swingtown Express play for us sometime in the new year and hope you will join us when it will be possible. If you would like to contribute to supporting the band for their cancelled gig you can send us an e-transfer to info@catscorner.ca that we will pass along to them.

Classes continue: tap class at 6pm and the intro class at 7pm and then close for the night.

We take a break for the next two weeks but classes will still be able to continue in the new year and we look forward to seeing you there.

Thank you for your understanding and for helping us take care of our collective health.

With love to you and your families, Meghan & Anaïs

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! 🙂
