CIES Summer Festival - Indigenous Dance Studio Performance

The line up of this year's annual CIES Summer Festival Performers on August 16th at the ArtBOX on 17E may be the best yet. An exciting addition to this year's show is the Indigenous Dance Studio Performance. We are honoured to have them join us and dances that day will include the Women's Jingle Dress, Traditional, the Fancy Shawl, Men's Traditional Dog Soldier style, Fancy Bustle, and the Hoop Dance.  All of us here at CIES are looking forward to what should be an amazing performance.
