The dance floor was over a whopping 7,000 sq feet of hardwood at Dalhousie University’s famed McInnes Room. And we had plenty of space for tables and chairs, TWO large projection screens and a theatre-style stage! The room had large vertical windows for natural light.
Michele Burton and Michael Barr (California, USA) and Gerard Murphy (that would be me!) were the featured instructors. Donna Laurin (Ontario, Canada) was our event DJ. She did an outstanding job keeping the floor filled during the TWO evening social dances.

On Sunday, we organized an escorted bus tour for 35 out-of-town guests. We spent four hours visiting the landmark Peggy’s Cove and touring Halifax highlights. And we topped off the post-event festivities with a private lobster supper at a downtown restaurant!
But what’s the BIG NEWS?! In 2020 we’re taking Restart to St. John’s, Newfoundland on July 10th and 11th. We’re pumped to invite you to our home province to dance with us and to explore this remarkable city. Joanne Brady and Gerard Murphy will be your featured instructors, and Donna Laurin will be back as your event DJ.
