Welcome to O-Town Showdown, a phenomenal weekend of competitions in Ottawa focusing on great social dance skills, awesome attitude, creativity, and fun! This coming year will be the fifth O-Town Showdown, and it's shaping up to be bigger and better than ever!

There's lots that's new this year at O-Town! Some of the exciting changes this year include:

  • Full weekend of awesome! That's right, this year there are competitions, food, classes and dancing both Saturday AND Sunday, so hold on to your hats!
  • New competition divisions, including a Strictly Lindy Hop competition and a Newcomer Jack and Jill!
  • Bigger, Longer team division! By overwhelming request we've extended the limit... Team Short Showcases can now be up to 2 minutes long!

O-Town Showdown V will take place on March 10-12 2017, in beautiful Scotton Hall at Ottawa's Glebe Community Centre. Join us for a weekend of great people, fun performances, and exciting competitions, and dance your feet off to the fabulous music of Glenn Crytzer and his New Yorkers both Friday and Saturday nights! As if that wasn't enough, this year's late night dances will also have live music, with the Douglas Watson Blues Band Ft. Josh Miller on guitar, all the way 'till 4 am both Friday and Saturday.

All in all, it's an event not to be missed! We're super excited for this year's bout, and look forward to seeing you there! Get ready to throw down at the showdown!
