Swing Idol "Nite" is back. To refresh your memory and for those relatively new to the Ottawa scene, Swing Idol "Nite" is a combination of performances and social dancing. Food will be provided to keep everybody fuelled for the evening :)
We have a lot of talented people in the swing dance community. This is a chance for Ottawa swing dancers to showcase their talents *other* than swing dancing. At this stage the organizers are looking for anyone who would like to perform and share their talents with their fellow swing dancers and guests. So if you play an instrument,the piano or whatever, sing, tell jokes, perform some other kind of dance, say like belly dancing, we'd like to hear from you. Duets and groups are welcome. The only requirement to perform is that you are a swing dancer. There will be two or three peformances and then some dancing, another 2 or 3 acts and then another dancing break on thru the afteroon and evening. Please let Dave know as soon as you can what you would like to do (emails sent to will be forwarded to Dave for co-ordination).
As an added bonus, we will be celebrating Swing Idol Dave's 80th birthday at the event!

This year's Swing Idol 'Nite' will be held at the Glebe Community Centre Sunday afternoon May 26/2013 from 4.00 to 8.00 pm with set up from 4.00 to 4.30. Tickets are $7 in advance or $10 at the door, and are on sale at the OSDS Friday night dances.
