Welcome

Welcome to O-Town Showdown, an afternoon of competitions in Ottawa focusing on great social dance skills, awesome attitude, creativity, and fun!

Last year was the first ever O-Town Showdown, and the event was a great time for everyone involved! We can't wait to have you all back for the REMATCH on March 7-8 2014, and we're working on some fun ideas to keep the energy, creativity, and badassitude flowing! 2014 will see the return of favourites such as the Prop and Jill and the Short Showcase, while adding exciting new elements to keep you on your toes!

Already, we're delighted to announce that thanks to our partners the Ottawa Swing Dance Society and Swing Dynamite , we'll be dancing to the fabulous music of the Boilermaker Jazz Band both Friday and Saturday nights! Make sure to come out to both evenings to get your fill of dancing to this awesome band!

O-Town Showdown is modeled on the success of Swing Riot in Montreal, and in turn on other battle-style competitions such as the Savoy Swing Jam in Seattle, Lindy Bout in Vancouver, and the Ultimate Lindy Hop Showdown in New Orleans.

We're super excited for this year's rematch, and look forward to seeing you there! Get ready to throw down at the showdown!
