Dancers of Damelahamid


The Dancers of Damelahamid are coming to perform at KL on October 1st 2015

Dancers of Damelahamid are a professional Aboriginal dance company from the northwest coast of British Columbia. The Gitxsan, ‘people of the river of mists’ are part of the coastal group of cultures that have the distinctive button blanket regalia. Their rich history of masked dance inspires a compelling performance, celebrating the diversity and time depth of the many beautiful Indigenous cultures across Canada. Through dramatic dance, captivating narrative, intricately carved masks and elaborate regalia the Dancers of Damelahamid transform time and space, and bridge the ancient with a living tradition.

Join our facilitators at the Crimson Coast Dance Society for the Dancers of Damelahamid workshop! Date: Thursday, October 1, 2015: 6pm – 7:30pm Where: Kl Mini Bighouse, 544 Centre Street “The workshops are movement based and we have the participants dance a few different styles of coastal First Nations songs and explain the cultural significance of the movement techniques as well as the importance of story and traditional knowledge in the dance form. We also use songs to teach simple vocabulary in the Gitxsan language. All levels of experience are welcome. Participants are asked to dress comfortably and wear moccasins or bare feet.” 4S Cultural Programs are available to each youth in care of Kwumut Lelum. Youth must be supervised at all times by a caregiver or an adult approved by each child’s Guardian. A light dinner will be provided at this session. Please RSVP to KL no later than September 26, 2015. 250-591-0933
