Looks like you found our secret hideout. We weren't sure what to put here, so here's a Jeff joke:

What did the pirate say when he turned 80?
"Aye Matey"

(say it out loud.)




No outdoor shoes

Bring a spare pair of shoes to change into before entering the studio. Depending on the class you are taking, appropriate footwear could be: suede-soled dance shoes or street shoes with clean soles. When in doubt, ask your instructors.

Classes start on time

Please arrive early to allow our classes to start on time.

Classes end 5 minutes early

Unless otherwise specified, all our classes end 5 minutes before the stated end time, in order to allow the next class to start on time.

Photos / videos during classes and events

Please do not take any photos or videos during class. If you would like to record what we did in class, ask your instructor to demonstrate at the end of class. Instructors can accept or decline at their discretion. Any videos taken by students/participants are for personal use only.

We may occasionally take photos and videos during classes and events, for promotional purposes. If you have any concerns or misgivings about being in these photos, please advise us ahead of time. All photos taken by our instructors and administrators are the sole property of Azucar! Latin Dance Company and will be used at our discretion.

You and/or your guests are welcome to observe any class at no charge, so long as observers do not participate, disturb or disrupt the class. Observers who disrupt our classes will be asked to leave the studio.

Missed classes

If you know you will miss a class and you let us know before you register, or if you join a class after the session has begun, we may prorate the class fee. After registration, there will be no refunds for missed classes; however we can try to schedule some catch-up time with you if you ask us.


You are welcome to try the first class before you register. After the first class, you can choose to either register for the full course or pay the drop-in rate of $20+HST. If you decide to register after paying the drop-in fee, you only need pay the difference for the rest of the course.

How is my email used?

Electronic receipts

We input your email address into our payment system so that we can send you an electronic receipt for your payment. This information is not stored after the transaction is completed.

Class lists

When you register for a class, we create a class email list so that we can contact you with regard to that class if needed – for instance, is a class is cancelled due to weather or a holiday. These lists are purged after the class is over.

Mailing list

If you agreed to be added to our mailing list, you will receive periodic newsletters in the form of monthly email updates and occasional special bulletins.

Our mailing list is hosted on a secure server with a newsletter provider and is never shared or sold to any third party. You may unsubscribe from this list at any time.

Please note: if you are enrolled in a class but unsubscribe from our mailing list, you will still receive email about the class you in which you are registered, until the class ends. However, you will no longer receive newsletters.
