Though my husband is 52 years old, when he was a teenager he travelled across the country participating in step dancing competitions (a dance that is very popular in the Acadian Maritimes). He became the Canadian champion in his day and has a life size mural of him in the Acadian Museum in Summerside, Prince Edward Island. He is well known in the province and is paid to perform at events. The following video was taken here in Ontario at a Valentine's dinner at our church where we had fiddle music. He neglected to tell them not to play so fast so this is the fastest he has danced in awhile. The next year he told them to slow it down a bit. Dancing at a Maritimer's Club dance in my town is where I met my husband and it was his dancing that attracted me to him. Take a look:
