The 15th Annual Spring Break Body Talk Dance Workshop: HiP HoP PoW WoW II, 2018!
Looking for a Spring Break Activity? Sign up now for this week-long youth program. This year TEENS are the focus as award winning guest artists, each with their own youth empowerment programs, come together to bring out the best in local youth while sharing Indigenous culture!
Pow Wow dancers and urban street dancers, James Jones (Tribe Called Red dancer) and partner, Marika Sila (Circus Hoop Artist) will share Indigenous dance, circus and urban street grooves. Local phenomenon, SirReal, keeps it real with his positive messages through rap arts. He will teach rap writing and performing. Snuneymuxw drum maker, Jorge Two Eagles Lewis, will facilitate drum making and Snuneymuxw teachings regarding drums. Participants will make their own Coast Salish drum to keep.
Crimson Coast Dance is partnering with Snuneymuxw First Nation Health Centre for the weeklong workshop at Snuneymuxw Gym, March 19 to 23. The public is invited to a culminating demonstration by the teens and performance by these top-notch artists at the Malaspina Theatre at Vancouver Island University, March 24, 7:30pm.
