Project Description

Tribal Vision Dance

Visions of Turtle Island – Performance

Explore First Nations history and traditions and confront stereotypes in this high-energy, multidisciplinary performance. Visions of Turtle Island includes live singing, dancing, and video and image presentations to help explain the dances and illustrate the cultural experience of First Nations peoples in Canada. The performance ends with the traditional Hoop Dance which embodies a message of interconnectedness.

First Nations Song & Dance – Workshop

This high energy workshop is broken into two parts. Students will first learn the essentials of First Nations music and be taught a simple song. They will then be introduced to First Nations dancing, including how and why people dance, and they will pick up basic steps and moves. Throughout the workshop, participants will get to play team-building games to reinforce what they have learned.
