- Dancing Down Main Street, SUNDAY 12:30PM - 1:00PM
It has been talked about from Vancouver to Toronto and we started it in the heart of Canada. Dancing Down Main Street is exactly what it sounds like. Absolutely no experience necessary and pet friendly (if your pets like to dance.) This year, we are dancing to on original song "SUMMERTIME " by Flin Flon's very own Evan Zach. Choreographer Casey Ranks will lead with a short 15 minute lesson, but we also encourage a little freestyle if your feet so desire.
