Powwow Workout Class – A “Powwow” is a First Nations’ celebration of dance, songs, and food. This 45-minute high-intensity workout will introduce traditional powwow dancing by incorporating moves from all styles of powwow dance with the sounds of traditional powwow music.

Indigenous Theatre’s vision for connecting with our audience includes creating space for Indigenous arts and bringing a range of rich perspectives to our audience. By inviting the dancers whose work inspires us to lead us in a dance exercise, we extend our family and provide a shared experience and connection.
Indigenous Theatre commits to opening the doors of the NAC to all with free Indigenous programming. Powwow Workout honours the power of dance and invites the community to be in their bodies as part of the holistic care of body, mind, heart, and spirit.
This Powwow Workout event will be available to watch on Indigenous Theatre's Facebook page. The video will be available for only 24 hours.
