Saturday October 18th
Place des arts Père Anselme-Chiasson, Cheticamp – 2:00 PM, Tickets: $30/25, Reserved Seating
Dancing is second nature in Cheticamp, so it’s no surprise that local troupe La Swing du Suête has been part of the school arts program for years. Today they get to experience one of the best in the world. Nic Gareiss moves easily from Irish to Appalachian and every style of percussive dance possible as he travels the world performing and teaching. Today he brings along Scottish harpist Maeve Gilchrest. The Chaisson Family from Prince Edward Island is no stranger to Cheticamp or to dancing. Like Marc and Joel, they learned the fiddle and piano traditions in the context of step dancing and square dances. The CapeLand Dancers will show off both highland and step dances while La Swing grads Amélie and Christopher step forward in style.
