Busy Times For Soaring Eagles

Our Soaring Eagle dancers had a very busy week. This was the first workshop of the month and and the following day some of our dancers received a 'standing ovation' for their presentation at the ACA National Conference at the Town and Country Resort. We could also include Valentines Day and many schools had off for President's Day. The Workshop provides some stability in these busy times and keeps us all connected to our heritage and community.


All the dancers continue to receive valuable individual instruction in the various dance categories and refine their techniques. Taylor Begay was announced last time as our newest instructor, we're excited to have her. Each week our young singers are really getting comfortable being at the drum and take the opportunity to learn these traditional roles seriously.


Our Elder John Hood(Dine) was able to join us and had these comments to share with us along with some great pictures.
Good to see "old faces" for the session. It's refining to have various instructors as the season flows with the wind. These individual instructions are readily followed and easy to duplicate and remember. Children are resilient and quite intelligent with cohesive innovation and creativity. They create extended relationships, family and communication bond. It also becomes therapeutic as well as a support system.

It makes us feel good in our hearts to be part of Soaring Eagles and have our dancers represent themselves and their traditions to the greater community. Thanks again to all who helped make that possible and we hope to see you at the next Soaring Eagles Workshop.

Soaring Eagles meets every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month from 6-8pm in the Santa Fe Room - 2144 Pan American Rd. San Diego CA 92101 Easy to get to and lots of parking! See you Feb. 27.
