Inverness County Dance Project

  • CMH 86-46
  • Collection
  • 1986

Collection consists of seventeen, ¾” tape (U-matic) videocassette reproductions and textual records created for the Inverness County Dance Project by Barbara LeBlanc and Laura Sadowsky for the Canadian Museum of Civilization, now the Canadian Museum of History, Musée canadien de l’histoire.

While working on their M.A. (History) at Laval University (QC), LeBlanc and Sadowsky completed the Inverness County Dance Project. For years they pursued independent research in the Acadian areas of Inverness County and Waltham, Mass. During June to August 1986, in collaboration with the Beaton Institute and the Canadian Museum of History (formerly the Museum of Man), LeBlanc and Sadowsky researched dance traditions of Acadian, Irish, Mi'kmaq, and Scottish groups in Inverness County. These collected sound recordings, textual transcripts, and moving images were recorded across Cape Breton Island.
