Royal City: Saturday, June 8th

FDFest Royal City Park

- Sat. June 8th  2019

Welcome to the FDFest Royal City Park.  This is the launch of the 2019 summer dance events hosted by the Flying Dance Community, with partnership and collaborations with several dance communities in the area, and sponsored by local businesses.   

This year, we will be celebrating 15 years of dancing in the outdoors (2004-2019),15 years of learning and teaching one another about dance/life, meeting amazing people and hearing/seeing beautiful stories unfold in our dance community.  The Flying Dance Community would like to thank the dancers and friends Guelph and the surrounding communities for all their support all these years, thank you!

FDFest Royal City starts at noon (Saturday, June 8th) with some music for social dancing, primarily Salsa & Merengue.  We have workshops all afternoon, from 1:00 pm to 6:20 pm, performances followed by social dancing until 10:00 pm to Salsa, Bachata, Cha Cha, Kizomba and Merengue.  All dance workshops are taught at a basic level, so everyone will leave the dance floor knowing how to dance at least one dance step. 

The festival is held every year at the Royal City Park, close to downtown Guelph and along the Speed River. You will get to enjoy dance workshops taught by local dance schools and lots of social dancing in Music from around the world.  Below are the details for the day.  Please let us know if you have any question, thank you
