A Dance Extravaganza is happening in Inverness County this Christmas. Visiting from Toronto, MacKenzie Greenwell will be sharing his dance talents in TAP, HIP HOP and JAZZ with dancers from Cheticamp to Port Hawkesbury and beyond. He will be offering workshops the week of December 16 – 21, and will follow up with a house concert with Scott MacMillan and Brian Doyle on the 22nd at Laurel Browne’s. Please take advantage of this special opportunity as we can learn from a Tap Fanatic and a special teacher of the many disciplines.
