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.
