About Can-Am

A world-class ballroom dance competition

Be part of the excitement of Can-Am DanceSport Gala

The success of the Can-Am DanceSport Gala has established this Championship event as one of the premier competitions in North America. By all indications, from all the comments that were received during and after the event, our new venue, with its Toronto Harbourfront location, proved to be the right choice for the return of the Can-Am. The 2015 event once again takes place in the 24,000 square foot Metropolitan Grand Ballroom of the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel.

This landmark waterfront hotel rises above Lake Ontario and is conveniently located near the Air Canada Centre, CN Tower, Theatre District and many other Toronto attactions. As an added bonus for Can-Am travelers, it is literally only blocks away from the crossing to the Toronto Island Airport that services Porter Airlines as well as Air Canada. Porter Airlines flies to selected US & Canadian cities and is known for offering “Business Class” amenities to all their passengers. The Toronto Island Airport also makes travel a more positive experience, as it requires less than half the “checking in” time than most Airports do.

The organizers of Can-Am competition, through a well-planned schedule, a distinguished panel of judges, high level competition, and great attention to detail, will once again bring you a world class event that is exciting, rewarding and thoroughly enjoyable for all participants, Amateurs, Professionals as well as spectators.

As a DanceSport event, along with experiencing the excitement of competition and memorable dance performances, Can-Am is also about experiencing all the fun, elegance and class that ballroom dancing has to offer.

We invite you to Toronto. We invite you to be part of this incredible experience.
