Wanuskewin is looking to add to our list of Dancers and Drummers/Singers for events, special requests, and daily/weekend dance presentations.

Examples of opportunities are:

  • Weekend dance presentations throughout the year (Jan – Dec) for general public as part of Wanuskewin’s public programming
  • Daily dance presentations from May – September
  • Online learning sessions with classes, schools, and other groups
  • Special requests to be part of meetings, conferences, and opening celebrations
  • Wanuskewin events throughout the year
