This past weekend, Soo Blaster hosted the first annual Sault Dance Off organized by a local grassroots multi-cultural group called Global Friends.
Global Friends facilitates activities that promote strong, healthy and cross-cultural relationships between Canadian-born, Indigenous and refugee youth in here in Sault Ste. Marie. The event brought together people of all ages and from various backgrounds to both compete and cheer on contestants. Starting with a moving demonstration on the origins and history of Indian dance by special guest Kanaka Sudhakar, the youngest contestants hit the dance floor shortly after as DJ Seith and David Forteau cranked out the tunes.
What a night as everyone was treated to some pretty incredible performances!
