About Us

We are a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to providing a fun evening out in a friendly atmosphere for singles and couples ages 40+.

The Kanata Dance Club is organized by the Kanata Singles Club Inc., which was created in 1975 to offer a place for singles and couples to meet, socialize, and dance while creating a community of friends.

Our DJ – Bob Freeman – keeps the dance floor busy with a variety of music, including pop, swing, Latin, and slow songs. Dancing is often free-style, in groups, solo and some partner-dancing, too.

We even break into a fun line dance occasionally. 
The Club is managed by a board of volunteer directors, elected at our Annual General Meeting. Our dances are made possible with the help of many
volunteers, who assist us with set-up and take-down.
Thanks to your support, we donated $500 to the Kanata Food Cupboard in February 2023.  Since 1999, we have donated over $40,000 to various local charities such as:

  • Kanata Food Cupboard

  • Boys & Girls Club

  • Kanata Senior Centre

  • Ottawa Western Resource Centre

  • Ancoura

  • Carlington Community Chaplaincy, and many more.
