dance parties toronto februaryThe Guvernment has finally finished its year of closing parties, but that doesn't mean that there aren't plenty of other places to dance this February. Sure, it's cold and depressing outside, but it will be spring sooner than you think, so help the time pass by getting hot and sweaty on the dance floor.

While it didn't make it on to the list this month, the ongoing winter monthly Sunday Afternoon Social parties is always a good bet for chilled out day time dancing, and a good winter replacement for the summer Promise Cherry Beach events.
