Seaside Square Set

37437 Cabot Trail

902-224-2306



Learn some steps and dance to live music as the sun sets over Ingonish.

Celebrate the cultural heritage of Cape Breton Highlands National Park with this new program. Explore the history and importance of square dancing to early European immigrants to Cape Breton, and discover how the isolation of communities led to the development of distinct styles. Learn steps and figures, then put your new-found knowledge to the test as you dance a full set to the rhythm of live fiddle music accompanied by the waves crashing nearby (and a guitar).

Do you already know how to square dance? Come join us anyway! It’s great fun for beginners and experts alike!
