Les Folles Jambettes, which translates as Crazy Legs, hail from Grand Forks British Columbia. They are a high kicking spirited group of dancers highlighting the Cancan style of the 1800’s. For the last 18 years Les Folles Jambettes dancers have brought history alive with the style of shows that was common in the Boundary region, and elsewhere in B.C. and the western U.S., throughout the boomtown mining days. They can be seen flying across the stage doing leg circles, the pigeon wing, and dropping to the splits! The women in the group range in age from 27 through 62 and come from all walks of life. They are mothers, councilors, nurses, managers, seamstresses, community support workers, students, and small business owners! They have performed for many events including the acclaimed Kamloops Cowboy Festival, the Vancouver PNE, the Williams Lake Stampede, an event at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, the Wild WEst Fest in OK Falls, the Merrit Mountain Music Festival, the Hope Mountain Blues Festival, Fall Fairs, B.C. Cattleman’s Association AGM's, and have traveled, representing Canada, to Forst Germany and Poland at their annual Folklore Avalanche.
