By Stephen Vance, Staff

dusk_dancesIf you are looking for a change of pace and something a little different to do this coming weekend, you might want to take a trip to Flesherton where the Dusk Dances festival will be taking place at the arena grounds.

Dusk Dances which had it’s beginnings in Toronto, is an outdoor festival that brings high quality contemporary and traditional dance to public parks. The festival has been taking place for more than 15 years in communities across Canada.

Featuring an array of choreographed dance routines inspired by the natural environment surrounding the festival location which are presented every night at sunset.

The Flesherton Dusk Dances festival is scheduled to begin on Thursday August 26 at 7 pm, and runs through to Sunday.

The show will kick off with 30 minutes of musical entertainment provided by Moonshiners’ Daughter. Following that, theatrical host Michael Copeman will lead the audience on a magical tour of four contemporary modern dance pieces, including a local piece created and choreographed by Helen Jones, founder of Artemesia Dance.

These dance pieces will be performed outside in the park-like setting surrounding the arena grounds and ball diamond. The audience is encouraged to sit on blankets or lawn chairs, and to follow the action throughout the park.

Admission is pay what you can, making the event accessible to all.

If you want to get a head start on the dance festival and perhaps learn some dance techniques yourself, you’ll want to attend the Dusty Roads Gala Ball at the Flesherton Arena 7 p.m. on Tuesday, August 24. The dressy affair will feature the vocal stylings of Rick Tourlousse and ballroom dancing instruction with Dusk Dances professional Zhenya Cerneacov. The evening features a licensed bar, snacks and canapes, door prizes, spot dances and a silent auction, all in support of Dusk Dances.

With so much going on, you might want to plan on making a weekend of it in Flesherton for the Dusk Dances festival, as you won’t have any trouble finding things to do during the day.

On Saturday, August 28, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., Flesherton kicks back with their third annual summer bash “The Fling”, which will feature the first ever Grilled Cheese Competition.

This highly anticipated event starts at 12 noon with grilled cheese samplers being prepared by The Bakery, Donabies, Leslieville Cheese Shop as well as a few rogue entries.

Those who attend can buy a ballot by making a small cash donation to the local food bank. They will then sample the offerings and cast their vote. The samplings are at 12, 1 and 2 p.m. and the Bayshore Broadcasting cruiser will be there to tally the ballots and announce the winner live on air.

The Grilled Cheese competition is just one of the many activities planned for the Fling. There will be main stage entertainment at the Munshaw House, face painting for kids, balloons and ice cream treats.

The South East Grey Support Services will be hosting a pancake breakfast beginning at 8 a.m. at the North Pavilion. They will also be running a dunk tank and games at the South office, across the way from the Munshaw House — Fling Central

At the Museum there are children and family activities. Yoga, karate and Nia demonstrations will also taking place, while over at the Library and the Legion you can find an historical photo exhibit.

What better way to celebrate the end of a wonderful summer.
