Dancing on the Pier is back weekly this summer on Toronto’s favourite open-air dance floor.
Zuze is a 10-piece folk-jazz ensemble dedicated to interpreting Iranian pop/cabaret melodies to afrobeat rhythms. The confluence of brass, woodwinds, strings, and percussion create broad avenues for textural possibility. Zuze requires no pre-requisite in Iranian culture & dance; merely an open-mind and a willingness to engage in the immediate experience of the wide world at our doorstep.
Mayada Belly Dance
Mayada has taught bellydance classes across Toronto at various venues, as well as running specialty workshops across the continent. A background in fitness and personal training gives Mayada an informed perspective on the anatomy of movement, which she designs her teaching around. In September 2003, Mayada opened Fierce Fitness, giving her the opportunity to share her experience and expertise by teaching at her own studio.
Dancing on the Pier continues on Thursday evenings until August 31.
Every Thursday grab your partner, put on your dancing shoes and take a free dance class on Toronto’s waterfront. Styles of dance are inspired by Harbourfront’s summer festivals, varying from week to week including Flamenco, Tango, Swing, Celtic, and Latin. With dance instructors on site and live bands providing the tunes. See the full list here. And it’s all free!
