Dance Nights

Ottawa is fortunate to have some of Canada's best swing nights every week!

Saturday Night Swing every week!

Swing Dynamite's own Saturday Night Swing features beginner lessons by some of Canada's most qualified swing instructors (some of whom are internationally recognized teachers and swing champions), swing DJs with professional credentials, and frequent contests and performances. People often dress up (think "night on the town") and there's usually a good crowd but still enough room for dancing. Beginners can enjoy the "total beginner" lesson at 8:15pm, and many regulars like to show up for the 9pm "bonus lesson." The dance goes until 1am and many people actually stay until the end!
