Summer 2011 Métis Dance Project at Fort Langley Artist and Community Collaboration

Summer 2011 Métis Dance Project at Fort Langley Artist and Community Collaboration

Compaigni V’ni Dansi is seeking individuals interested in learning Métis traditional dance and being part of a summer performance. The performance will include traditional Métis dance as well as contemporary dance, and theatre. Experience is not necessary, however all applicants need to be available for the entire project and be in good physical shape. After all, jigging is Métis aerobics!

Compaigni V’ni Dansi is unique in being the only Canadian company to teach and perform traditional Métis and contemporary dance. Yvonne Chartrand created the company to share Métis stories and culture with Aboriginal and mainstream audiences.

Project Infomation:
The project will run from Monday July 4th, 2011 to Sunday August 14th, 2011
Rehearsals: July 4th-22nd, 2011 in Fort Langley, Monday- Friday
Rehearsal Times: 10am- 4pm
Performances: July 25th- 28th, August 2nd-6th & 10th-14th
