square and round dance in eastern ontario

Swing Into Spring

Swing into Spring is an eastern Ontario dance weekend established under the joint auspices of the

In normal times, Swing Into Spring is held annually on the weekend of the first Sunday in May at the South Grenville District High School in Prescott, Ontario. Through a fun and exciting weekend of square and round dancing, Swing into Spring lets you dance to visiting dance leaders who have been selected specifically to provide interesting and innovative workshops along with entertaining and fun dancing. You’ll have the opportunity to reconnect with dancers you already know while making many new dance friends. The Swing Into Spring Committee especially hopes that dancers who have only recently started dancing will join us to expand their dance experience, make new friends, and send the dance season that’s ending out with a bang!

That’s what happens in normal times … remember those times? Sadly, earlier this year, the approaching pandemic caused the Swing Into Spring Committee to conclude that it would not be possible to gather last May as we usually do. Swing Into Spring 2020 was cancelled.

With the COVID-19 pandemic still upon us (and with some indications that the end isn’t as near as we would like), the Swing Into Spring Committee has reviewed existing national and provincial health protocols, local and provincial restrictions and requirements for gatherings, and information about the availability and cost of our usual venue. As with last year’s event, it quickly became obvious that effective planning for a 2021 event would not be possible. Therefore, Swing Into Spring has become a victim of COVID-19 — for a second time!

Swing into Spring 2021 has been cancelled.

Earlier this year, when the 2020 event was cancelled, many of you agreed to have your paid registration carried over to the 2021 event. If you have already registered for 2021, we will be communicating directly with you about options for your registration.

However ...

Ever the optimists, the Swing Into Spring Committee is still hard at work. Since we fully expect things to get back to normal again (and soon, we hope!) we've already begun working on Swing into Spring 2022! We look forward to sharing exciting ideas for getting back to the fun of dancing and getting back together with all of our dance friends post-COVID!

Stay safe. Be well!
