Welcome to Side Street Swing
Thanks for visiting Side Street Swing! In response to the worldwide Coronavirus pandemic, all our in-person classes, practices, socials, and shows are currently on hold. We are taking the recommended social distancing measures very seriously, and intend to remain closed for as long as required to keep our students (and their loved ones) safe.
But don’t worry! Side Street Swing will not disappear completely. Online content is in development, and we have lots of great ideas that we hope to begin rolling out soon. We are really excited about the things we have planned, and are looking forward to giving you more information as soon as we have it. Watch our website and Facebook page in the coming weeks for updates on what we’ve got going on!
If you were signed up for a class that has been cancelled, we will be reaching out to you soon to decide what to do next. We are happy to offer you credit for a future class, transfer you into one of our online options, or defer your registration until we are able to start up again. If this crisis has put you in financial need, we are also able to offer some refunds. Please feel free to reach out to us if that is the case!
We are so grateful for the amazing swing dance community here in Ottawa, and for all the support we’ve been getting from friends and fellow dancers. While we are devastated to have to shut our doors, we know that it is both necessary and temporary. We can’t wait to dance with you when this is over!

Side Street Swing
Welcome to Side Street Swing! We are Ottawa's newest dedicated Swing Dance school. We specialize in all forms of vintage swing dancing, including Lindy Hop, Charleston, Balboa, Blues, Shag, and many others. The driving force behind our school is to build the community - we want to share our passion and love of this dance with anyone interested in listening and learning!
We offer group classes, private, and semi-private lessons, for groups of any size. No previous dance experience is needed, and no partner is required!
We also offer a wide range of services to match any occasion! From live performances and demos to introductory lessons for large or small groups, and from custom choreographies on specific songs, to filling the dance floor and setting the tone for a vintage gala, we are happy to be a part of your next special event! Side Street also offers wedding packages, to teach you how to dance and help you create a wedding choreography that will wow your family and friends!
Welcome to Side Street Swing, where fun is our business!
