V’ni Dansi’s Louis Riel Métis Dancers

The rhythms and images of the Métis spirit come alive through traditional and contemporary styles of Métis dance and music in Red River Special, which combines the Red River Jig – the national dance of the Métis – with the Orange Blossom Special, and square dances. Traditionally, dancers would challenge themselves to perform up to 100 “fancy steps” during the Red River Jig and the company will build on that tradition with a crescendo of steps and “crooked” fiddle tunes. This joyful performance celebrates the best of the old and the new, and is sure to get your toes tapping!
