Work up a sweat, build stamina & muscles dancing to the fast heartbeat of the drum. This class gives an introduction to the different styles of pow-wow dance and the basic steps of traditional, jingle & fancy. Both girls and boys styles will be emphasized. Veteran powwow dancer with 30 years of experience, Nyla Carpentier, will guide participants through a 2-hour class. The start of the class will be a warm-up to prepare the feet for some powwow dance action, followed by the powwow cardio portion of the class and then a cool down with stretching. Basic steps and formations will be shown and the history and origins of dance styles will be discussed.
 
*Please dress in comfortable clothing and be ready to get sweaty. Ages 12+
 
Presented by Raven Spirit Dance with support from BC Gaming
