Road Trip! Ohio's Largest Line Dance Party

Look at us at last year's event!!

The Canton Italian American Festival holds Ohio's Largest Line Dance Party each year, with Frank Trace as DJ/Dance Host! We'll carpool from Polaris and return that evening.  We might have a "late" car that stays to the end at 11pm, but plan to leave at 10pm and be back at midnight.

The festival has great food, fun shopping, and live music as we wait for the dancing to start. Several hundred people dance for four hours while another couple hundred watch! It's a sight to see!  There is a nice mix of very easy to rather hard new dancers enjoy dancing a few, watching a few, etc.  It's line dancing at it's best!

The meetup cost includes gas, parking, and admission to the event. Those who drive will be reimbursed for their gas expense.  Food and other fair purchases will be separate.  You are not allowed to bring food into the event.

It's normally hot this time of year, so dress very light...bring a hand-held fan if you like.  It cools off as the evening progresses and becomes very pleasant.


Here's a link to the festival's website...

And Frank's website....

And a youtube video of a fun group dance we did two years ago....if you look carefully you can find me!

 We have a list of dances that Frank will probably play during the evening...I have sorted them by levels and put his dances in bold. The dances you can learn on are marked with an asterick.  We will several fun ones in classes during June!

    Frank did an amazing always! The crowd was a bit smaller, giving us more room to dance. I was really proud of the beginners (especially Jonathan's daughters!) who jumped in and tried a bunch of dances. Food was was fun. Welcome to Ginny, who went on her first road trip with us!

    Fantastic! I had a great time dancing and spending time with our group. Frank had a good mix of dances and taught some. I really enjoyed him and everyone there! It inspired me to keep learning. I want to be able to dance all night.
