VIDA! $30 tickets for you…

If you haven’t had a chance to see the show VIDA! playing at the Royal Alexander Theatre in downtown Toronto, there are still 4 days left. The show was extended due to its popularity during the Luminato Festival. I was also provided with a great offer to extend to my students so I thought I would include it here for you and tell you what I thought of the show.

Instead of the usual $84 best seat tickets, you can now see the show for only $30! Performances are taking place on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 8pm as well as Saturdays at 2pm or 8pm.

To take advantage of this great deal refer to the promotional name “FIESTA” when ordering online at or by phone at 416-872-1212.

This show has received excellent reviews. Many of our students went to see it and had great things to say about it. Personally I enjoyed the performance. You can see the work that was put into the performance.

It is a life story told through the eyes of an old Cuban woman. The dance troupe is all female and there is only one male who dances. If you are looking for a show with partner dancing this is definitely not the show for you which was my only disappointment. However, the female dance troupe was amazing, their choreography was well timed and executed and very clean. It was easy to see that a lot of practice went into the rehearsals and it showed.

I really enjoyed the afro-cuban movement in the choreography. There was a great deal of jazz and ballet influence to the choreography but those pieces of afro-cuban movements were beautiful to see and made me want to immediately hit the dance floor.

Would love to hear what you all thought about it so feel free to add you comments.
