It’s 50 years since the Forrester School of Dance began offering classes in Scottish dance. They were breaking new ground, not an easy 'feet' by any means, but they continued with passion and exuberance. Today we'll showcase some nifty steps from the Forrester Dance Company alongside La Swing du Suête, Cheticamp’s premiere dance troupe. Both groups comprise many young dancers who work hard year round preparing for their performances. Leanne Aucoin and Kolten MacDonnell—who play fiddle and piano as well as dance—share similar passions in their work with the Cape Breton Fiddlers’ Association. Christine and Sylvie Doucet, from just down the road, have worked with dance troupes on both sides of the island, while sisters Dawn and Helen teach dance in their every day lives. Don’t miss the best of Cape Breton dance on the big stage in Chéticamp.

Hosted by Conseil des Arts de Chéticamp
