Normand Legault
Normand Legault is one of the most talented and knowledgeable dancers of his generation. He is a master of the art of la gigue, a distinctively Quebecois form of solo step dancing which may very well have been adapted at least in part, from old Irish and Scottish step dancing. Normand favors the older, more improvisational approach to step dancing. In addition to dancing, he also plays the bones and fulfills the role of caller at dances where his wit and enthusiasm proves contagious.
