Dancer Salute, PowWowStep Summer Tour 2017

I worked with hoop dancers, fancy dancers, fancy shawl dancers, a jingle dress dancer, and a chicken dancer on the PowWowStep Summer Tour 2017, which made it pretty amazing. We hit up 15 cities in July and August and I encourage you to book one or more of these 14 incredible folks for your upcoming events, festivals, and performances.

The dancers were AJ Akachuk, DeAnne Akachuk, Rylee Sandberg, Ascension Harjo, Karahkwiiohstha King, Classic Roots, Shanley Spence, Sandra Lamouche aka Yellowhorn, James Jones, Jasmine Phillips, Ty Smoke, Josee Bourgeois, Ryan Oliverius, and Viola Brown-Peoples.
