Held in a modern traditional Tlingit clan house, these dances are powerful performances that kids love. The booming echo of a drum, the smell of burning cedar, the lively chanting, and the energetic dance moves make for a memorable experience. The 30-minute performances include a story and five traditional songs. The dance troupe includes performers of all ages, dressed in colorful black and red blankets or traditional regalia.
There are women’s and men’s dances as well as a participatory dance, where audience members are invited to join in
The dances tell stories from Tlingit oral tradition, and the troupe has received permission from elders to sing certain songs and perform certain dances.
