"What an amazing way to blend culture and dance! It was so heartwarming to see youth of all cultures sharing in First Nations culture through their shared love of dance! This is the type of opportunity that shapes a young person – a positive experience of a culture that is often misrepresented in the media – is priceless for both native and non-native participants alike.” - Jane Zanutto, Parent of Participant.
