University Settlement Recreation Centre

This is a community centre which hosts many community activites throughout the week. Toronto Dance conducts dance classes in Latin, Ballroom, and Salsa at this location.


Building Location and Directions

University Settlement Recreation Centre is located at 23 Grange Rd (not Grange Ave), at the entrance to Grange Park. Grange Rd is a short road off McCaul St, between Dundas St and Queen St. Enter via the main entrance, go up one floor and go into the Gymnasium. If you arrive after 4pm (for the 4:30pm class) and the ground floor door is locked, ask the receptionist to buzz you into the stairs going into the Gymnasium.

Here is a picture of the front of the centre.

Directions via TTC

Go on the University Line (west of the Yonge Line). Go to the St.Patrick subway station which is 3 stops north of Union Station and 3 stops south of St.George Station. St.Patrick station is at the corner of Dundas St and University Ave. Exit the St.Patrick station on the west side of University Ave. Keep walking west (3 streets) to the first street light. You should see the street curve to the right and then left again (keep the CN Tower on your left side as you walk). If you wish to take the Dundas streetcar (which doesn't run very often on a Sunday), exit on the North-East side of the street and go one stop west.

At the first street light, walk south (facing the CN Tower) along McCaul St. You will see a little street on your right called Grange Rd. Here is a picture of Grange Rd.

Directions via Driving

Drive along University Ave or Dundas St until you get to the University and Dundas intersection. Drive west along Dundas St until the first street light. Drive south on McCaul St until you see Grange Rd. See pictures above. Look for parking on the street or parking lots.

For those coming from another city, drive along the Gardiner Expressway and use the "York-Bay" exit. When you exit, stay on the right lane, which will curve around. Once it curves, stay on the left side to go on York St, heading north. Once you pass under some bridges, at Front St, stay on the 2 left lanes to curve left to University Ave. Once you go past King St, Queen St, and Dundas St, you can make a U-turn to go south and turn right/west on Dundas St.


Dance Hall

The classes are held in the Gymnasium which is one floor up from the street level. The floor is wood. Here is a picture of the dance hall.
