Event description

Description

Presented in partnership with Otahpiaaki 2019: Indigenous Beauty, Fashion & Design Week.

Join hoop dancer Sandra Lamouche for a dance demonstration, storytelling performance and workshop where she will share the origins and history of indigenous hoop dance. Participants will have the opportunity to make their own hoop, learn the basics, and collaborate in creating a team hoop dance.

Sandra Lamouche has over fifteen years of experience in ten international styles of dance including ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, modern, contemporary, hip hop and powwow styles, and the hoop dance. She has worked with Indigenous choreographers, artists and dancers from around the world. Her practice is informed by the belief that performance can be used as a way to create spiritual, physical, emotional and mental well-being.

Lamouche is a Nehiyaw Iskwew (Cree Woman) from the Bigstone Cree Nation in Northern Alberta and married into the Piikani Nation in Southern Alberta. She received her B.A. in Native American Studies from the University of Lethbridge in 2007, and is currently completing her Master of Arts in Indigenous Studies from Trent University.

Registration essential. Opens 6 November at 11AM.
