Canada Council for the Arts and the Ontario Arts Council are leading a major nation-wide dance survey. Information and survey form here.
Welcome to Ottawa English Country Dance Club in Canada's capital. We meet September through May weekly in Kanata and twice a month in Westboro. We dance mainly, although not exclusively, traditional English Country dances, many dating from the 17th & 18th centuries.
Dances range from lively dances that would have been danced at English village celebrations years ago, the kind you might have seen at a Barn Dance, to the elegant dances enjoyed by upper classes such as those seen in Pride and Prejudice and other costume dramas.
It is not necessary to bring a partner to any dance but do bring soft soled shoes. No dance experience is required although beginners may prefer to start at one of our regular Beginners Classes. Dress is usually casual although we do host the occasional dress-up events such as the Saturday Ball in our annual 'A Trip to Ottawa' dance weekend.
