Who are we?
Westie Underground is a group of passionate dancers and teachers dedicated to promoting West Coast Swing in the Ottawa area and beyond. We love this dance, and we want to spread that love as much as we can. We work hard to introduce new dancers to West Coast Swing and to encourage existing dancers of all levels with opportunities for growth, learning, and most importantly fun. We want to help you to enjoy your journey as a West Coast Swing dancer, from beginner through to social dancer, performer, or competitor.
Special Retro 50s Themed Dance
Join us on October 26 for a very special Saturday night dance. We'll be hosting a 50s themed retro dance at the Ottawa Circus School at 2275 Gladwin Crescent, Ottawa. It's a large venue with a great floor, air conditioning, and a DJ booth with a bird's eye view of the dance floor. We'll be playing a mix of retro and modern WCS music, and there will be costumes, line dances, and other fun surprises!
Regular entry will cost $15, but if you pre-purchase your ticket at our October 5 social dance, the cost is only $10, so don't miss out on this special offer!
Social dancing runs from 8pm-12am. There will be no lessons at this dance.
