Dance partners are not required for attending dances. The dances are open to everyone. Even during lessons there are rotations of partners.

Partnered Jazz Dancing (Lindy Hop) is deserving of once again becoming the main focus as "the night out," for many singles and couples, of all ages.

Partnered jazz dance currently has two main events in Ottawa. One is volunteer run on Fridays by OSDS (Ottawa Swing Dance Society). The Saturday event is a private school, Swing Dynamite, operated by Byron Alley and Natalia Rueda, world class Swing dance teachers and competitors.

Ottawa Dance Revival would like capitalize on the current dance scene of small facilities that hold hundreds and grow the events to a high class facility that holds several hundreds, to even thousands.

For now it is important to increase the number of dancers in Ottawa to encourage the relocation to larger and better facilities.

The volunteer Friday event (317 Chapel @ Laurier) is only $5, with a free lesson. 8:30 pm, (www.swingottawa.ca)

The Saturday event (151 Chapel @ Rideau) is only $7 ($5 students with ID and seniors), with 4 free lessons. 2 @ 8:15 pm and 2 @ 9pm. (www.swingdynamite.com) Note: The Saturday event has an extra appeal for modern music lovers, West Coast Swing (as seen on "So You Think You Can Dance"). Decades ago WCS adapted to slower rhythms and beat counts and found itself complimentary with emerging music scenes. WCS is essentially a "walking" speed dance with the opportunity for lots of "body support" or contact dance movements.
