This spectacular 50-minute performance is a rare opportunity to experience the wonderfully diverse drum dancing traditions of First Nations and Inuit peoples from across the North.  

For centuries, drum dancing has been an important part of northern cultural and social life. From the intimate grace of master Inuit drum dancer David Serkoak, to the breathtaking power of Yukon’s Dakhká Khwáan Dancers, from the scale and narrative skill of the Inuvik Drummers and Dancers, to the driving rhythms of the Dene Dehcho Drummers it is clear that drum dancing remains today a vital and beloved art form that is enjoying a resurgence among artists of the younger generation.

Don’t miss a once-in-a-lifetime chance to share in the excitement and passion of Spirit of the Drums.
