Contemporary and Traditional Dance Workshops
Dance has been an integral part of our survival and cultural evolution into this century. A tool of self- expression, dance is ceremony and prayer. It is through our varies art practices that we are able to reclaim our spirit acknowledging and transforming hardships that we have endured for hundreds of years including abuse, loss of land, language and family structure.
This workshop/presentation will create cultural awareness and a greater understanding of who we are and where we are coming from as Indigenous people. Participants will be moved and connected with a better understanding of our First Nations Culture. Culture is an extension of our nature and spirit alive and well in this 21 st century.
This workshop will include a performance, presentation and talking circle.
