Performing Dance Arts (www.PerformingDanceArts.ca), a premier dance academy for youth, is announcing the opening of a second location in Etobicoke, Ontario.

Performing Dance Arts’s highly anticipated second location will be at 37 Advance Road, suite 104, in Etobicoke, Ontario. Its grand opening celebrations will be on August 14 and 15, 2017; while the studio will be open for drop-in classes during the month of August, classes will officially begin in September 2017.

“Our Vaughan location has been brimming with new students, so we decided to open a second location in Etobicoke since it’s an expanding area with a lot of families and children interested in dance,” says Ashley Daychak, Creative Director at Performing Dance Arts.

The new Toronto location is fully equipped with the necessities and will feature three large studios with state-of-the-art flooring, girls’ and boys’ changerooms, as well as up-to-date audio systems and lighting. Parents will also have the luxury of watching their children during their sessions thanks to the TVs in the lobby and cameras in each studio.

“We’re so excited to be branching out further into the GTA to be able to serve all of our students better,” says Daychak. “Our main focus will be to help our new students realize their potential and see how far they can take their passion for dance.”

The new Toronto Performing Dance Arts location will offer jazz, tap, ballet, hip hop, and acro style classes; however, this studio will only offer recreational dance and part-time competitive programs. Hours will remain the same as those of the Vaughan location: Monday to Friday from 4:00 p.m. until 9:00 p.m., Saturday from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m., and closed on Sundays.

“Our staff consists of trained teachers who have an exceptional talent when dealing with children,” says Daychak. “We’re looking forward to using these teaching abilities to reach the youth in the Toronto area, and we are thrilled to become a part of the rapidly growing neighbourhood.”

Ryan Daychak, General Manager of the Vaughan location, will also be managing the Toronto studio. The lead dance instructors will be Ashley Daychak, who has 20 years of teaching experience, and Vanessa Suppa, who brings 25 years of dance experience and more than a decade of teaching experience.

“Vanessa and I can’t wait for the first classes in the new studio—we’re certain that parents and students alike will enjoy the atmosphere of Performing Dance Arts and the amenities we have to offer,” Daychak concludes.

Performing Dance Arts provides both professional and recreational dance lessons for children and youth. Operating out of their Vaughan location, Performing Dance Arts has served the GTA since 1986 and will continue to do so with the addition of its Etobicoke studio.
