The OSDS is proud to announce that we are sponsoring the Ottawa Blues Blast, taking place from April 5th-7th 2013. If you love blues dancing, you can't afford to miss this event! And if you don't know if you love blues dancing - come to this workshop and you will
The Ottawa Blues Blast features a weekend jam-packed with incredible live music, talented djs, inspiring workshop classes, late night dances, and dancers joining us from a multitude of other cities as far away as Waterloo, Toronto, Halifax, Boston, Baltimore, and Rochester  for the occasion. Come out and make our out of town guests feel welcome!
The star lineup of instructors for the weekend includes Damon Stone, Heidi Fite, Amanda Gruhl, Shawn Hershey, Byron Alley and Natalia Rueda, and as you can see by the schedule, the mix of classes will be suitable for those who are just getting started in blues as well as those who are already swimming in deep waters.
The Saturday night dance featuring the Douglas Watson Rhythm and Blues Revue will feature a jack and jill contest and a cutting contest, and then finish up the night at a gorgeous heritage venue with a late night rent party.
Dance all weekend long - retire to the Lunenburg on Sunday evening for one final farewell blues dance and say a fond good-bye to all of your new out-of-town friends!
