The Wild Moccasin Dancers are a dynamic dance collective that captivates their audience through pow wow culture.
Each dancer shares their style of dance though traditional and contemporary rhythms. Get inspired by their intricate foot work, the beauty of their regalia and the powerful sounds of the drum.
Shyama-Priya began dancing as a teen, and was extremely shy of public speaking until she started sharing the gift of dance. Dancing is a gift to your spirt, it is a gift to others. Dance is a way to express your inner being.
One of her notable appearances was dancing in The Vancouver 2010 Olympic Opening Ceremonies! A year later she was honored to be invited by Larry Yazzie, two time world champion fancy dancer, to dance with his group,The Native Pride Dancers. This was a 6 week dance tour that brought her to the USA and Europe!
Since being blessed with a beautiful daughter she has been dancing closer to home.
Shyama-Priya teaches pow wow dance within her community, holds workshops, and performs with other talented gifted dancers at various events and festivals!
"Vancouver’s Shyama-Priya wore a spectacular golden shawl and outfit covered with intricate beadwork. The "dance of transformation" evoked a fluttering butterfly. Her footwork was airy and she possessed the confidence of a beautiful, almost supernatural being." -Star Tribune USA
