Dance Opportunities

Our pre-season recruitment drive is over for this year and we want to thank all the new people who came out to give square dancing a try and to our new students who are now attending classes and working their way through Basic and Mainstream levels.

Note: Because square dancing is a cumulative course, after classes have begun it will be too late to join us until next September .

However, we occasionally will do intro dances around Ottawa so if you’d like to be notified when those will be occurring, please subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on social media.

Special Dances

Holiday Dance

Our yearly holiday dance will take place on Sunday, December 1, from 2:00 pm to 5:30 pm at Jack Purcell Community Centre and will feature Barry Clasper from Toronto calling class-level Basic, Mainstream, Plus, A1, A2 and C1.

This event is open to all square dancers including EOSARDA club dancers so get your tickets now.

Buy your tickets in advance for $10 at Eventbrite or pay $15 at the door and come celebrate the season with some energetic and fun dancing.
