Dancing in Shanghai

#1
Hi! Does anybody know anywhere I can actually dance Ballroom and Latin in Shanghai? I'm under the impression that a lot of people do it, but either I'm in the wrong city or I'm not looking in the right direction.

I live in Toronto Ontario. For dancing venue I go to http: //www.dancinglist.com which lists majority places in Ontario and Florida USA.
But when my wife and I were in Shanghai and surrounding cities in june this Summer, we can hardly find a place to dance. We did managed to go a place called 白乐门 (pronoune roughly bay-loo-mum). At time it was under renavation. We paid 100.00 YMB each for afternoon section of 3 hours. If one didn't have a partner a host will cost you 400.00 YMB (1 US = 7.45 YMB). At night the admmision will be 200.00.
They reopen Late July this year and claim a high class night club.
I Googled with 白乐门 上海 + night club, dancing , got few website you can visit, but you may need a Chinese friend to translate some of them.

Good luck and post here if you do find few nice place.

PS: this messange board don't have a spelling check and I can't copy/paste to my email to correct, hope you still can read it.

Finally I found the Website for Paramount (白乐门 )
http: //www.sh-paramount.com/web/sh-paramount-blm01.htm
Looking at the floor plan it certain will be a great night club secting, but the dance floor is actually only 1/2 of what it used to be before the renavation when we visit there.

Suggestion-- go to the IDTA ( I think the UKA also ) website-- they have member listed schools in their directory for Asia-- this would be the surest method if you want B/Room type dancing as opposed to club style .

unfortunately IDTA doesn't have any information about ballroom dance studios in china

if you are looking for some ballroom dance studios in shanghai, i can tell you a number of them as I'm currently located here. the problems is most of the studios (at least the ones I have attended) only have group lessons in chinese. however, there are instructors who speak English, Zhi Wei Qian & Yao Che for example (see their international rating at http://dancesportinfo.net/Couple/Zhi_Wei_Qian_and_Yao_Che,10063/Results.aspx). Feel free to leave me a message if you need their contact info.
