square and round dance in eastern ontario

Where to Dance -- for new dancers (Fall 2019)

Each September, clubs in Eastern Ontario and neighbouring areas begin their fall and winter season. The clubs listed below are welcoming new dancers to expose them the fun of dancing. Most clubs have Open House nights where you can learn more about the dancing and see if this fun activity interests you. Open House nights are generally free to new dancers.

Included below is information on Square Dancing, Round Dancing and Line Dancing. Please check back and verify the dates close to the night in question; some school venues may not confirm dates until September requiring last minute changes to the schedule. Dates shown in Red are last year's dates; check back later as clubs provide updates ... or contact them directly to get their current plans.
