Hoop Dancer Dallas Arcand Talks About ‘Living a Circular Life’

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown February 22nd, 2016 Last Updated on: August 14th, 2016

Back in 2014, three time world hoop dancing champion, Dallas Arcand spoke at the annual TEDxYYC in Calgary, Canada. During his TedX Talk, he explains how dancing has taught him to find a healthy balance in life.

“His journey of self discovery inspired his belief in the ability of circles to restore harmony. Dallas also shares his culture and performs a special hoop dance to illustrate the athletic and creative art form that saved his life.”

I hope you enjoy his words and his dance!

Dallas Arcand is a high energy Aboriginal Entertainer from the Alexander (Kipohtakaw) Cree Nation near Edmonton. Arcand is also a renowned musician and motivational speaker, facilitating workshops for aboriginal people of all ages, speaking on topics ranging from self-awareness to personal motivation. His Aboriginal name is ‘Dancing Buffalo Man’ (Nimihto Paskwa Mostôs Napew), and for many years Arcand had no idea that dancing would become a major influence in his life. A graduate of Mount Royal College with a General Studies Diploma majoring in Behavioural Sciences, he now delights in sharing his culture through this athletic and creative art form.
