Frequently Asked Questions

Who can come to Round Dance?

  • Everyone is welcome! This event is a celebration intended for our entire community. 

Is there a schedule of activities?

  • Our Round Dance will start at 7:00pm, from there we will follow a natural progression of song, dance and stories until our closing which will happen after midnight.

What can I expect at a Round Dance?

What should I wear?

  • Come as you are. Long ago women wore long skirts with shiny beaded tops to the Round Dance. That being said, as you can see in the video you are welcome to wear whatever you feel comfortable in.

What are the steps of a round dance?

  • The Round Dance moves in a clockwise sideways motion with each dancer connected together by holding hands.  From there your left foot steps, and your right foot slides.
