MABOU: East Coast Celtic will take place on November 10 at 7:30 p.m. at Strathspey Performing Arts Centre.
Discover strength in the culture of the Gaels to overcome life’s challenges. Liven the spirit in the rhythm of the music and dance. Dream it. Dance it. Live it.
Change of Step’s theatrical dance production East Coast Celtic celebrates the music and connection to culture that inspires them to dance. Together with world-renowned Cape Breton musicians Dawn Beaton, Margie Beaton, Mac Morin, and Kenneth MacKenzie, Change of Step shines a spotlight on rich traditions of Canada’s East Coast, setting audiences’ hearts alight. Change of Step performs rhythmic, intricate choreography that is grounded in a deep appreciation for traditional music and showcases the strength and grace of modern highland dancing (with some step dancing added for good measure).
This professional dance group consists of Holly Arsenault, Kayleigh Armstrong, Jenny MacKenzie, Janine Lesperance, Marielle Lesperance, and Chantal Watt.
The energy that comes from this production will have you entranced, dancing in your seats – it is a show filled with colour, precise movements, and musical accompaniment that will truly feed the souls of audiences, make them happy and leave them wanting to come back for more.
The local professional musicians have honed their Gaelic cultural abilities to the point of excellence – and it is a rare opportunity to hear these four collaborate in a production such as this, complimenting the fascinating dance arrangements of East Coast Celtic!
Don’t miss this chance to come out and support the community while simultaneously embracing the development of professional dance in the area.
