Join us to watch and dance to the Jivewires, Ottawa's hippest live jive band. This is a special event, that includes a free dance lesson with your $10 entrance fee. What a deal!
This swing dance party with live big band is the hottest scene tonight! The Ottawa Swing Dance Society does this the first Friday of every month. Come out to practice what you learned through our Funabalu-Singles swing dance program , take their warm-up lesson at 8:30 pm, and watch some of the best dancers around our region, especially towards midnight. Our Funabalu dance program provides lessons and a dance group to practice with at this and other events around town. It is the best way to learn, in the company of people you already take lessons with Mondays,Tuesdays or Wednesdays.
After thousands of years, the evidence shows, the best way for men and women to meet is still through dancing.. Why wouldn`t you be here?
It`s kinda like speed dating, except you are moving around, having fun, and meeting an active community of healthy minded singles.
Women will find our Funabalu swing program always has a good ratio of men to women. Men will find a supportive environment, where women appreciate your being there to have fun with.
Unlike other programs, we provide you a group to practice with, have fun, and meet new people. After our first month swing dancing, we have this party to demonstrate our new dance skills and have fun.
Why? Dancing is more fun when you have people you know to dance with. Funabalu leads an outing each week to explore our city's dance scene and practice our moves we learned earlier in the week. It's the best way for singles to meet, learn, and have fun. If you may like to join us, but don't know how to swing or salsa dance, why not join our lessons?
Door fee: $10 (for live band and lesson)
Time: 8.30 pm to 12 am, warm-up lesson at 8.30pm to 9.30pm (drop-in intro)
