The Adelaide Club

This is an aerobics room within a fitness centre in downtown Toronto. Toronto Dance conducts dance classes in Latin-Ballroom and Salsa-Nightclub and private lessons (including Wedding Dance Choreography) at this location.

Note: You can get to this location directly from the TTC subway without going outside. We teach in two different rooms:

  • Original Studio (air-conditioning)
  • Yoga Studio (no air-conditioning, has ceiling fan)

You don't need an Adelaide Club membership to enter the club as long as you are attending a Toronto Dance class and have signed the Insurance Release Form. You must check in with the front desk and within the room each time.

Building Location and Directions

The Adelaide Club is located in the First Canadian Place, Concourse Level (one below street level), south-west corner of Adelaide St and Bay St.

Come early the first time you are going there because some people get lost. You can also phone the Adelaide Club directly if you are lost at 416-367-9957 ext 0. For all other inquiries, please click on "Contact Us" above.

There may be some street meter parking but they are harder to find. On a Sunday, it is free until 1:00pm and you can probably find them easily on University Ave. So for those who have noon-1:00pm classes, you can park and pre-pay 1:00-1:15pm.

There is a $5 flat-fee parking at the Scotia Plaza off Adelaide St, east of Bay St.

There is a $7 flat-fee parking on Sheppard Street just north of Adelaide St W.

There is a $6 flat-fee parking at the TD Centre weekdays after 6pm and all-day weekends.

There is $8 flat-fee parking under the First Canadian Place. Enter via York St or Adelaide St. See map:
