Ivan Flett Memorial Dancers
Ivan Flett Memorial Dancers are three siblings from Winnipeg, Man. who share a passion for jigging. The three Harris siblings, Michael, Jacob and Cieanna have been jigging ever since they can remember. They were shown the ropes by their grandparents. Michael, Jacob and Cieanna blend traditional dances of the Red River Jig with its contemporary cousin, the hip-hop jig. The dancers were formally known as the Slick and Lil J Show, but when Grandpa Ivan Flett, one of their biggest fans, passed away, they renamed themselves the Ivan Flett Memorial Dancers in his honour. They hope to motivate and inspire people of all ages, and show that their Métis heritage continues to evolve through dance and music.
