Tried and tested: Toronto’s Newest Adult Ballet Class

It’s never too late to try.

With two studios in Vancouver, Goh Ballet, led by director and former prima ballerina Chan Hon Goh, has officially opened its first Toronto location in Bayview Village, North York.

Having performed with worldwide ballet companies and with an incredible 20 years under her belt as the Principal Dancer with the National Ballet of Canada, Chan Hon Goh’s career as a dancer is extensive to say the least. After gracing the stage for the last time and retiring in 2010, Goh took over as the Director of Goh Ballet to educate the dancers of tomorrow.

Speaking with FASHION before we attended a class, Goh told us how excited she was to open her first location in Toronto, a place where she spent years training and dancing with the National Ballet of Canada. The new studio provides her with opportunity to carry the same passion and philosophy from her Vancouver locations over to the east coast, she says.

Upon our arrival, we noticed that the fresh, minimalistic space in the studio inspires a sense of calm as soon as you walk through the doors. Focusing on the introductory positions and accompanied by live classical music on the piano, the class provides a pleasant change of pace from the stress and rush of the working day. Plus, ballet provides a different kind of workout: one that works on strengthening and toning areas and muscles in your body that are often forgotten. If you are looking to improve your posture, balance and flexibility in a calm, relaxing environment, adult ballet classes may be the way to go.

Goh Ballet offers a range of ballet and dance classes for both children and adults. No matter your age, it is never too early, or late, to establish the basis for a healthy lifestyle, all while expressing yourself through one of the most beautiful art forms that exist. Book your first class here.

Watch Lana Del Rey’s New Video for “Fuck It I Love You” and “The Greatest”


Lana Del Rey grew up in upstate New York, but you’d never guess that by the looks of her new video. The singer goes all-out California girl in the new visual for “Fuck It I Love You” and “The Greatest.” In the first half of the clip, she’s a surfer girl in a wetsuit (although she skateboards a little, too), and there’s some nostalgic, campy shots of her in a red one-piece balancing on a surfboard that could be straight out of a 1960s beach party film. The lyrics are a fair bit darker than the sunset coastline setting suggests—the song ends with her singing Drugs is in my vein, running out of time/California dreamin’ I got my money on my mind.

In the next half of the nautical-themed video, Del Rey indulges in more old-school California fantasies, singing, I miss Long Beach and I miss you, babe… I miss the bar where the Beach Boys would go/Dennis’s last stop before Kokomo. She walks around the Port of Long Beach in cutoff jean shorts and a pair of white sneakers, and those scenes are interspersed with glimpses of her performing for a small crowd of aging hippies in a dive bar (lucky them!).

It all ends on a somber note (Hawaii just missed a fireball/L.A. is in flames, it’s getting hot/Kanye West is blond and gone/‘Life on Mars’ ain’t just a song), as Del Rey vapes pensively in a jacket emblazoned with a massive cresting wave. She might look like the quintessential Cali girl, but as she sets sail into the darkness, it’s clear that her idea of the golden state is one tinged with nostalgia—the actual future is far more foreboding.
