2018 Westie Olympics

LET THE GAMES BEGIN!

Smoothstyle is 10 years old in 2018, and July 2018 is the 4th anniversary of our weekly WCS event. To celebrate, we’re holding the 2018 Westie Olympics throughout July.
 
The Olympics consist of one Westie Game each night (held at 9:30 pm) during Ottawa’s Weekly West Coast Swing Event. 
  • All games are free to enter
  • All games are open to anyone who has completed our Levels 1 A+B+C or equivalent 3 months of WCS lessons
  • In addition to glory and bragging rights, winners will be randomly awarded points that won’t buy you anything
Challenge yourself! Celebrate your dance! Cheer each other on! Celebrate with us!
 
Sign-up sheets are available at our Tuesday-night event from June 12 through July.
