Acknowledgements

Treaty & Historical Acknowledgement

We would like to acknowledge the history of where we are and of the dances we are celebrating.

 

We respectfully acknowledge that our events take place on Treaty 6 territory, and the traditional lands of many First Nations, Métis, and Inuit people.

 

Also, what we teach and study is an African-American vernacular style of dance - this dance was and still is an expression of the trials and triumphs of the African-American community. We do not own these dances, and it’s our goal to celebrate them, their spirit, and their origins.

Additional Acknowledgements

We would like to thank all of our volunteers, executive member, instructors, and coaches for their continued dedication to our club.

Thank you to Kayla Willsey for the photographs used on our website.

And finally, thank you to all of our members for keeping our club, and the love of swing dance, alive.
