Traditional Cape Breton style step-dancing is alive and well on the Island and is enjoyed regularly by young and old

The early styles of step-dance focused on solo dancing, but as time progressed, Cape Breton style square-dancing became a huge part of the tradition as well.

Today in Cape Breton, square dances are attended hugely for social purposes, but they certainly offer good workout at the same time! Best of all, you can jump right into the action and have fun as a novice.
