Sowchea Elementary had some special visitors recently. The Yekooche Dancers came to the school and performed some First Nations dances and drum songs for the students and teachers of Sowchea.

Students appeared spellbound for the performance, and even had a chance to get up and participate for a song, dancing around the room.

There was also a teacher’s song, which got all of the teachers up and dancing around there room as well.

According to their intro, the drummers and dancers haven’t been practicing together for all that long, but they did a great job of keeping the audience enthralled. Each dancer also had a part in making their own regalia.
