The Golden Ears Metis Jiggers have been invited to open for the RCMP musical ride.
The dancers performed at a special Haney Farmers Market at Brookfield Farm this past weekend, and are looking forward to their next big gig, said Metis jigging teacher Lisa Shepherd.
The dancers are gearing up the for Sept. 5 performance at the Albion Fairgrounds.
At the farm, Shepherd - who offers dance classes through the leisure centre - was leading both the children and adults in their formations.
"It's teaching [them] about their culture," she said, claiming the RCMP musical ride is based largely on Metis dancing and many of the formations mirror those of Metis jigging.
