Every year there's a local French Festival (though it looks like this could be the last one) and one of the main events is dancing. Ballroom, tango, and, yep you guessed it, cancan.
The dancing takes place on a very crowded stage that is partially tented so that the audience can have some shade.
Needless to say, due to the extreme contrasts from the shade and bright July sun, the dancing is difficult to photograph.
This year I tried using flash, it helped some, but I'm not happy with the results.
