Performance Notes

It’s no secret that some of Cape Breton’s best dancers come from the culturally- rich and vibrant Acadian community of Chéticamp. This is where the famous southeast winds, known as les suêtes, blow strong onshore, and where local dance troupe La Swing du Suête has kept their dance tradition strong for more than 20 years. Paul Gallant has been vital to the troupe’s formation, with past director Nicole LeBlanc taking a strong leadership role over the years and long-time dancers Christine Doucet and Sylvie Aucoin leading the charge today. They will welcome fellow dancers from down the coast and the Canadian Prairies to show their steps. With lively music to boot, this is one charged up show!

Hosted by Conseil des Arts de Chéticamp
