Trolley Dances is an entertaining trolley ride event that highlights significant cultural, historical and natural features across the North Shore through music and dance performances. Replica San-Francisco trolleys transport guests to four secret locations where audiences are entertained by four unique, dance performances chosen specifically for each location.
The 2015 edition of Trolley Dances was all about Artistry and Athleticism, featuring the following performers and locations:
Dance on Wheels at Institute Park tennis & pickleball courts, District of North Vancouver - Chris Neima (Vancouver), Naomi Grigg (Seattle, WA) and special guest Joey (Seattle, WA) performed a skate jam on roller and inline skates, followed by Andy Anderson (Vancouver) on the skateboard.
