Choreographer

Roxane holds a Masters in Education with a focus on Indigenous Knowledges and Indigenous Pedagogies. She is from St'at'imc Nation and currently works as School District 73's Intermediate Aboriginal Resource teacher.
When I choreographed the songs for the Aboriginal DANCEPL3Y resource, it was a collaborative effort with local Elders, community members and students. We  worked together to find the appropriate movements that are culturally appropriate and relevant. This technique required us to hear many of the Aboriginal stories and learn about the different perspectives when creating these movements. Our choreography process is an immersion of a cultural experience.
