Put on your Dancing Shoes


Classes Begin May 4!

Looking for something to do that lets you make new friends and shed some COVID weight at the same time? Look no further because the Ottawa Date Squares are starting new classes on Wednesday evenings starting May 4 at 6:30pm.

Two left feet? No problem. We can help you sort that out and have you cutting a rug in no time!

All ages, all genders, gay or straight, trans or cis. The Ottawa Date Squares is where you can be yourself.


Location: Jack Purcell Community Centre (upstairs)

Date: Every Wednesday starting May 4.

Time: 6:30pm – 8:30pm

Cost: For new dancers, your first three class nights are free. $10 per night after that.

Dress is casual. Wear comfortable shoes (running shoes are fine) and bring your own beverage. You don’t need a partner (we have several on loan) and you don’t need any dance experience because our caller, Wendy, will teach you everything you need to know.

COVID Protections: The Ottawa Date Squares is choosing to err on the side of caution when it comes to our dancers’ safety and as such, proof of full vaccination will be required to attend classes and you will need to wear a mask at all times except when actively eating or drinking.
