Road Trip to Swing l'été

posted Jun 25, 2013, 10:01 AM by Swing Ottawa

It's time once again for what is becoming an annual tradition - we're taking a field trip! Join us for a fun bus ride to Montreal on July 13th 2013 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.
