No, I don’t mean the kind thrown all over the streets to keep us from falling on our bums. Although, there is a chance that you could see people falling on their bums at this event! Salt Truck Follies is the event to be at this weekend if you like “Fun”-draisers. This Saturday evening will include a silent auction, live band, dancing, drinks and my favourite: a “Dancing with the Stars” style dance contest! Come out to see “Hali-famous people being dipped twirled and strutting their moves on the stage by local professional dancers in front of a judging panel. My partner, Giacomo Bruno the owner of Snapd is impressively
enthusiastic and makes an awesome dance partner. From mimicking my dance stretches (“Don’t pull your hamstring Giacomo!”), to coming up with fantastic, creative ideas and making all of the pop culture references he is quickly making the list as one of my favourite dance partners! Kathleen Doherty has choreographed an adorable number for the two of us with Giacomo’s physical comedy adding ridiculous fun to the piece.
And what is this all for? To support our local dance programmers LiveArt Dance. If you’ve been to a show featuring large Montreal Dance companies or a large cast of local talent in the Dalhousie theatre this is the hardworking organization that makes it all happen.
I hope you can join in the fun this Saturday night, as we get salty at this year’s Salt Truck Follies!
