Dear community,
OSDS has cancelled all in person dances until further notice. We hope that you are well and staying safe, informed, helping each other and taking precautions as advised by the Canada, Ontario and Ottawa Public Health websites.

Every Saturday:
A super member of Ottawa's swing community, Rachel McNamara, is organizing an online jazz party starting at 8:30pm with chat breaks and known mob dances such as the Shim Sham and the Tranky Doo. Check out the Facebook events for all details, invite your friends and RSVP to be reminded that it's coming up!

Online tip jar: Although we are not holding in-person dances right now, we continue to have some expenses such as insurance on our wooden floor and equipment against fire and theft. So if you can, we would greatly appreciate a contribution to our online tip jar. Thank you very much in advance for your generosity!

Please take some time to read on the Black American origins of swing dancing and on ways you can support Black people and communities today - inside and outside our dance scene!

Join our Facebook group, check out the Events section of our Facebook page, and see the calendar below to know what is happening online swing-wise. 
Take care and we hope to see you virtually! 

- OSDS Executive Committee
