all about the fun to be had at Lamoureux Park in the circle near the bandshell.  Just to name a few styles we will be dabbling in Salsa, Tribal Bellydance, Hip Hop, and much more!  All of our teachers are from the Cornwall area and just want to share their love of dance with you, your friends, your little ones, your neighbour!  Class starts up at 6pm sharp
