We’ve got two fun & free dance contests happening this month, both with fantastic prizes and interesting formats!
Tuesday, August 11
OldsKOOL Romp – WCS Jack & Jill – Cash Contest
DJ OldsKOOL is sponsoring a winner-takes-all, cash-prize, Jack & Jill style dance contest. A roll of the die will randomly pair entrants. The contest is open to EVERYONE, and OldsKOOL will ensure that advanced-level dancers are paired with beginners. The only judge is OldsKOOL and the winners are whomever he decides!
- The winning couple splits a $100 cash prize, courtesy of OldsKOOL.
WHY, you ask? “When I DJ, I’m treated to a great show by Ottawa’s awesome dancers, This is a chance for me to give a little something back.” – OldsKOOL (a.k.a. André, a.k.a. AJ).
Entry is free; no pre-registration. Just show up! Contest time approximately 9:45pm
Tuesday, August 18
Strictly Swing Style WCS Contest
This contest is open to any dancers who do not compete, or who compete in newcomer and novice levels. Choose your own partner and enter together. You’ll be judged on teamwork, timing, technique, and how much enjoyment you give the judges.
- The winning couple receives passes to the Ottawa table at Montreal Westie Fest, and will be invited to be the first couple to dance in the September 5 Flash Mob on Parliament Hill.
- The runner-up couple will receive passes to Vermont Swing Dance Championships, and will be back-up if the winning couple is unable to dance in the Flash Mob.
Entry is free. Participating couples must register at the cash table BEFORE 9:00pm on Tuesday, August 18. Contest time approximately 9:45PM.
