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.

If you missed our intro dances, you will still have opportunities to give square dancing a try as we will occasionally 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

The Ottawa Date Squares are now in their winter semester and the last class for this session will be on May 20th after which the Date Squares will take a break for the summer and will return to dancing in September.

The Halloween and Holiday special dances were well attended and were a well deserved chance to enjoy dancing to special callers.

Our next special dance will be our Spring Dance featuring the calling of Barry Clasper. Class-level Mainstream, Plus, A1, A2 and C1. Open to all dancers in eastern Ontario who enjoy fun, energetic dancing. Tickets are $10 in advance via Eventbrite or $15 at the door.

We will be planning more special dances in the near future and will announce them here as soon as they are booked.
