Carousel’s 2019/2020 Dance Season About To Begin!

I’ve forgotten. Is this a bolero or a foxtrot?

Can you believe it!  In less than 2 weeks the Fall dance season begins at Capital Carousels. It’s time to figure out where you tossed those dance shoes back in May.

Pat has been busy making up dance programs and the first couple are posted on this website so please check them out and start reviewing if you’d like.

The fee structure this year is the same as last year, $5 per dancer for each dance day if paying in advance for a complete session, otherwise $8 per dancer if paying each dance day.
Monday dances will run from Sep. 9 to Dec. 9 with no dancing Oct. 14 and Nov. 11.
Thursday dances will run from Sep. 12 to Dec 5 with no dancing Oct. 31.
The club’s anniversary dance will be held this year on Friday Oct. 4 and the “In From The Cold” benefit dance on Friday Dec. 13. Both dances will be potluck with the hall opening at 5:30PM and dinner starting at 6PM.

“Capital Caper” takes place this year on Oct. 25 & 26. One change to note, there will now be an additional dance on Friday night following a shorter teach.

That’s about it for now. Look forward to seeing everyone on the dance floor very soon.

An Anniversary Dance We Won’t Forget!






The “pot-luck” dinner portion of Capital Carousel’s 5th Anniversary Dance took place on Friday 21st September. Unfortunately the dance portion of the evening was cancelled due to the violent storm system which caused power failures throughout the Ottawa area. The power went out at 6 PM so the dinner took place with rapidly fading daylight and a single emergency light. There was no shortage of delicious food items to choose from. A big thank you to all who contributed. There was also a wonderful 5th Anniversary Cake thanks to the club’s social convenors Ian and Ann Webb.
The club was honoured to have past dancers in attendance; Ian and Ann Wilkerson and Al and Eulice Harris. Also John and Barbara LeGrow who aren’t regular dancers with the club.
The evening came to a close shortly after 7PM when the hall was plunged into complete darkness due to an exhausted emergency light battery. Clean up took place using the flashlight “App” on multiple cell phones.
Special thanks to our Social Convenors, Ian and Ann for their hard work organizing the meal, Pat and Jill for decorating the hall, Pat Black for making up the program, which we unfortunately never got to dance and all who lent a hand to help in some way.
