Return to Our Lady of Victory School

Thank you to the Ottawa Catholic School Board for inviting us for another event at OLV!

The previous session was a big hit, with some students from that session serving as volunteers in order to attend this second event! They also presented us with a thank you card. Very sweet!

Like last time, we began with a presentation of Métis history, with special emphasis on the French influence on Métis culture, as part of Francophonie Month. We finished with a Q&A session for students interested in learning more.

Then, we performed the Sash Dance, the Red River Jig, the Orange Blossom Special, and Maple Sugar. Afterwards, we demonstrated some basic jigging steps and taught the students some simple routines which they performed to traditional fiddle music.

We hope to be invited back again! It was a wonderful day with enthusiastic youth!
