STUDIO LOCATION
All classes at MarrMac Dance – 8627 – 109 Street. Click here for map

Parking – The very busy parking lot to the south has a 90 minute time limit and you must register your vehicle at MarrMac. It is patrolled and you may be ticketed if over your time. We suggest finding street parking in the neighbourhood to the southeast of the studio (86 ave and area to the east of 109 St). West of 109 St. is all restricted street parking.

Transit – Route 9 travels north/south along 109 street in front of MarrMac. Staying at the Chateau Lacombe hotel? It’s a quick 15 min bus ride across the river, almost door to door.

The studio is a 10 min walk from the University LRT station and a 10 – 15 min walk from Whyte avenue.
