    Participants are introduced to traditional Métis jigging, learning the basic steps before engaging in dances including the “Red River Jig”, “Heel-Toe Polka”, “Orange Blossom Special”, and a group dance called the “7 step”. The artist begins with the basics of the dance while discussing Métis culture and history from the fur trade to today.

    Brad Lafortune is Métis originally from Sudbury, Ontario. Brad began jigging at a young age and started providing workshops and performances in 2009 upon moving to Ottawa. Brad studied at the University of Ottawa where he received his Bachelor of Science followed by a Master’s of Physiotherapy. Brad enjoys combining his passion for physical activity and wellbeing with a deep love and understanding of his culture. Brad believes jigging is an interactive way to physically engage individuals of any age, all the while learning about the intricacies of Métis culture.

    Welcome to Writing Series - Evocative Writing - Wordcraft for Emotional Impact with Amanda O'Gorman.

    The Stittsville Creative Writing Group, in conjunction with the Ottawa Public Library, is pleased to present the Welcome to Writing Series. This is a collection of seminars or workshops with the goal of making you a better writer. Our intent is to foster creativity, literacy, and love of the written word. Members of the SCWG will present on the indicated topic. Registration is required.

    The writer's adage says: don't tell your audience what you want them to know, show them what you want them to see.  You have practiced descriptive writing.  Now, step deeper into writing that is immersive.  Learn to use the tools of all five senses, as well as memory, emotion and soulfulness, to create a moment that your reader can feel, as well as see.  In this seminar we will explore the potential impact of word choice, and why selecting the best word for the moment is like creating a gourmet meal in which all the colours, flavours and aromas must compliment one another for full effect.  This will be a workshop in which you are welcome to create something new, or to rework a previously written piece that you want to take from Descriptive to Evocative.
