Northern Dance: Jade can can can.

Legendary are the dancing girls of the Klondike Gold Rush. While the gals of the day were not doing the can can (it's a popular misconception), that hasn't stopped this entertaining form of dance from becoming part of the Yukon's cultural fabric.

Every year, before and during the Sourdough Rendezvous festival, can can dancers can be spotted all around town. Sometimes, if you're extra, extra lucky, they'll give lessons. Jade had the opportunity to learn a few steps from these high-kicking ladies of the Yukon.

Hey, she's pretty good! Much better than I would be, no doubt.
