Garba Dance & Workshop

February 29, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm

Tickets by donation at the door (No experience required!)

 

Presented by Shaktiflow Studios, who are dedicated to empowerment through movement—stories told through dance. Each gesture has a meaning and with them we facilitate ideas of unity, equality, and change. 

Garba is the Sanskrit term for womb. Originating from Gujarat, this folk dance celebrates the circle of life and the divine feminine energy. This Indian folk dance involves clapping, twirling, and simple footwork. The dance is performed in a circle to assist the dancer with the movements and to unite the participants into sisterhood. Featuring Theresa Felling and Shrina Patel. Feel free to bring your own long, flowy skirt! 

*Be sure to check out Shaktiflow’s event, The Lioness, featuring dance, music and spoken word on Wednesday, March 4.

SkirtsAfire respectfully acknowledges that we are telling stories on the traditional and ancestral homeland of diverse Indigenous peoples including Nehiyawak (Cree), Metis, Inuit, Dene, Blackfoot, Saulteaux and Nakota Sioux, who have lived and travelled through this place thousands of years before us and signed treaty to share the land we live, thrive and gather on. We are all treaty people and as settlers to Treaty 6 Territory, which is also home to Métis Settlements and the Métis Nation of Alberta, we are striving to better listen, understand and learn from the Indigenous ways of knowing, being and doing. We respect and celebrate the languages, history and culture of the First Nations, Metis and Inuit whose presence continues to enrich this vibrant community here in ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ, Amiskwacîwâskahikan, also known as Edmonton, and at SkirtsAfire.
