Toronto’s Top Theme Dance Nights

Get Jiggy With It

Sometimes you need a little more than Ginuwine’s “Pony” on repeat. This city is home to a multitiude of transformational dance experiences that welcome you to get your groove on, get jiggy with it and get down tonight. Now that we cannot get our Elaine on at the Seinfeld bar, where do we go?


This monthly party courtesy of The Goin’ Steady DJs will take you on a music trip through time. It’s a dance party of the ages, spinning cuts from the 1890s to 2017 in chronological order at the Garrison.


Shake Rattle And Roll / Girl & Boy 90s Dance Party

Home to Choir! Choir! Choir!, Clinton’s also houses two weekly themed shindigs that dive into two different generations. Their Shake, Rattle and Roll night resurrects the pop, soul and roll of the 1950s and 60s, while the Girl & Boy Dance Party will revive your inner Kelly Kapowski. Dress accordingly.



The good people at I’d Tap That throw one of the best queer and sex-positive dance parties in the city. Always with a different theme, it is inclusive to all.

Yacht Rock at The Boat

Get smooth every first Friday of the Month at Kensington Market’s the Boat to groove along to the soft rock format that peaked in 1975-1984, polished and SoCal. Christopher Cross! Michael McDonald! Steely Dan! Live the life that Darcys’ aesthetic originated.
