Welcome to the studio at the top of toronto

Want to get started immediately?


Hi, my name is Glen Michael the President and founder of the National Ballroom Academy. Learning to dance can be exciting and even a little intimidating, so let me guide you through it gently. If you’re interested in getting started immediately with your private lessons, I'm offering new adult students a free consultation which will give you a chance to experience the school first hand to get a sense of who we are as a collective. At that time, you’ll perhaps find out why more people ‘Facebook Like’ this studio more than any other in the GTA. We’ll show you two or three different dance steps in a couple of different dances and we’ll move at your pace.. The National Ballroom Academy offers both styles of dance – American and International and no partner, experience, talent or age is required! If coming by yourself, your teacher is your partner. We teach children as early as four and adults well into their 80’s! People come in for many reasons including social, competitions or performances. You may have heard about the relationship with diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. We honor the process and are here to consciously help. We are the only Dance School in the world that has created a dance app just for your learning. We will do everything we can to help yopu acheive your goals and we don't hide our prices, nor do we offer cheap intro packages and inflate the prices after. We are who we are and we want to bring out the best in you. See you on the dance floor!
