square and round dance in eastern ontario

Swing Into Spring

Swing into Spring is an Eastern Ontario dance weekend organized by a volunteer committee made up of EOSARDA member dancers. The weekend features guest out-of-town dance leaders who provide workshops for multiple levels of square and round dancing. There’s also plenty of dancing time to practise and apply what you’ve mastered in the workshops. Swing into Spring concludes Sunday afternoon with the “Mother’s Day Dance” that was traditionally operated by the former Seaway Valley Square and Round Dance Association.

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!

For reasons beyond our control, sadly the Swing into Spring Committee finds it necessary to cancel the 2023 event. The committee will now concentrate on next spring so we’ll be able to present dancers with the best ever Swing into Spring … in May of 2024!

We’re always looking for help! Consider joining the Swing into Spring Committee. Meetings are not all that frequent and are held virtually so there’s no travel involved. If you have ideas and a bit of time to devote to creating a great dance weekend for your fellow dancers, contact secretary@swingintospring.ca or contact any of the committee members listed on the right.

Check back regularly, both here and on our Facebook page for the latest information about Swing Into Spring 2024. It will be held on the weekend of 03-05 May, 2024.

Stay safe. Be well!
