Métis dancer Graham Kotowich

From jigging to ballet

Listen to this interview from CBC Radio:

"Graham Kotowich is a Métis ballet dancer who has enjoyed success on European stages and is now back in Canada to attend an Indigenous dance residency at Banff Centre. He started dancing at age seven and hasn't taken more than two weeks off since then. While he is classically trained, he's also taking the time to explore his love of Metis jigging. For him, the experience is about more than dancing: he's grateful he's been given an opportunity to express his personal creativity."
