The Flying Dance Community (FDComm) was born out of a desire to create a space where Latin dancers of all levels and backgrounds can come together to learn, grow and have fun. Our mission is simple: to provide a welcoming environment where those who explore dance can uncover its remarkable ability to bring about change. Whether you’re an absolute beginner, or a seasoned pro, our community embraces and supports you in your dance journey.
At FDComm, our belief is rooted in the transformative influence of dance, capable of positively impacting both individuals and communities alike (more insights to come in future editions). Through this blog, I aim to share the wisdom and practical knowledge accumulated during my own personal journey, guiding and supporting dancers at every stage of their individual paths – from taking that initial step onto the dance floor to mastering intricate choreography for social events or even the first dance at a wedding.
“As a member of this vibrant community, I can personally attest to the joy, camaraderie, and personal growth you’ll experience.“JF (member FDComm 7 months)
Dance Lessons and Socials: A Place to Connect
Throughout the year, we organize partner dance lessons and socials in and around the Guelph, Ontario area. These dances cater to a range of partner dance styles, including Salsa, West Coast Swing, Argentine Tango, Bachata, Rumba, Cha Cha, Waltz, Kizomba, and more.
“I still remember my first dance social with the group. I was nervous, feeling a bit out of my depth, and worried I wouldn’t fit in. But the moment I stepped onto the dance floor, I was greeted with warmth and encouragement. It didn’t take long for me to feel right at home.”JF (member FDComm 7 months)
Moonlight Dancing, our outdoor social dance adventures, hold a special place in my heart. Imagine a warm summer evening, twinkling stars above, and the rhythmic beat of your favorite dance tunes, all while surrounded by a group of people who share your passion for dance. Sounds dreamy, right? This idyllic scene becomes a reality when you join the Flying Dance Community. If you’ve been longing for a place to connect with fellow dance enthusiasts and indulge in your passion for Latin partner dances, look no further. If you are looking for a place to sit, listen to beautiful music and watch people move gracefully on the dance floor, look no further, as you are welcome as well.
“One evening at sunset, during a Bachata dance set, I found myself lost in the music, feeling completely connected to my partner and the dance. It was a magical moment, and one I’ll never forget.”JF (member FDComm 7 months)
