The Kevin Locke Native Dance Ensemble in concert Thursday, October 11th, 2012 at 7:30 pm
South Central College Conference Center. Tickets will be $5 and on sale at the SCC bookstore beginning in September.
A blur of movement, visionary hoop dancing, dazzling fancy dancing, elegant traditional dancing, soaring powwow vocals, powerful drums, ancient flute songs, cultural insight, Northern Plains sign language, authentic stories of the First Nations – A performance to remember.
There is no other show like it. Representing the Plains nations of Lakota, Anishinabe, and Comanche, the Southeastern tribe Choctaw, and the Woodlands Nations of Ojibwe and Oneida, this one-of-a-kind ensemble of American Indian champions and award winners offers a rich variety of American Indian traditions and aesthetics in dance, instrumentals, song, storytelling, sign language and audience interaction. Also available are regionally specific programs with local artists working with the Ensemble to offer a wider variety of tribal representation. The Kevin Locke Native Dance Ensemble has been performing for the past five years. Recent appearances at the opening of the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian, a follow-up performance at NMAI in New York City, the World Culture Open at the Lincoln Center (sponsored in part by the United Nations), and a residency at the University of Arizona have all been met with high acclaim.
