July 16th: Join the OSDS at Swing L'Eté!

We're taking a field trip! Join us for a fun bus ride to Montreal on July 16th 2011 where we'll be participating in Swing l'Eté*, a fantastic Montreal summer dance tradition. You'll be one of hundreds of swing dancers dancing under the summer sun in a pavilion beside the Saint Laurent river. We'll meet at 10:00am and we’ll be leaving at 10:30am from St. Laurent Shopping Centre parking lot, in front of Toys 'R Us. Once we arrive at Les Serres Verdun, the afternoon starts with a beginner and an intermediate lesson, and then hours of fantastic social dancing. Mid-way through the event, we'll get a chance to rest while enjoying a performance by one of Montreal's swing studios :)  Swing l'Eté lasts from noon to 5:30, so we'll head back to Ottawa in the early evening.

The cost for this fun day-trip is only $15 - that gets you a round-trip bus ride (subsidized by OSDS), entry into Swing l'Eté - although that portion was already free :) - and the company of the most fun and enthusiastic Ottawa swing dancers you know! Act quickly – there are only so many seats on the bus, so get your ticket right away!
