Why come to a dance weekend in Owen Sound?

Here is what people have said about joining us at our annual dance weekend...

Let me tell you why we want to come back to Owen Sound and Spring Fling next year. Nice people. Friendly people. Laughing people. Beautiful scenery, a nice trip. Great food. Glad to see there were apres-dance parties, even though we were too tired and staying too far out of town to attend. Billeting, with wonderful hosts. No show-offs. No dangerous dancers. Lots of fun. Lots of healthy community activity.
I know that when the time comes, I will "talk up" Spring Fling as a wonderfully friendly and fun weekend for the dancers interested in a friendly, non-intensive dance weekend. I'll talk it up to others too, but they may consider themselves too sophisticated. Their loss.
- Joe Kwiatkowski

Although it was our first visit to the Spring Fling in Owen Sound, it felt was like old home week. We knew few people the first evening and were a little nervous as we are relatively new contra dancers. We had been invited to attend by an alumni of the Fling, an experienced dancer who told us we would love participating in one of the workshops, revel in the brilliant music and meet wonderful people. We were not disappointed!

The organizers and dancers were welcoming, kind, sociable, outgoing and helpful! In fact we were billeted by very kind owners of a nearby B&B and appreciated the atmosphere of their home and the delightful companionship of other dancers.
- Joyce Booth

We look forward to going every year, wonderful bands and callers, fabulous food and very friendly people. It's especially fun when some of them come back to our dance community!
