Friday Night Live: Celebrating Diversity at Lynn Valley Library

Event Details

Lynn Valley Library

Joel Grinke and his team are back with an all-new creation of stories and music, and featuring First Nations Dancing.

Nyla Carpentier (Tahltan/Kaska) is a multifaceted performing artist who first started to dance at the Odawa Powwow in her hometown of Ottawa, Ontario.

She started off as a traditional dancer though Nyla Carpentier quickly found that the high energy of the fancy shawl suited her best.

As a child she learned by watching other dancers in the powwow circle, following their footsteps and then practicing her moves.

Now with over 25 years of experience she also teaches the various powwow styles, sharing the dance steps and the history.

In 2011, in partnership with Raven Spirit Dance Company, Nyla started the popular Powwow Bootcamp.

Doors open at 7 pm. Tickets: $10 at the door. Under 12 – free.
