Asham Stompers

Electrifying Entertainers

The Asham Stompers are a fun, high-energy jig and square dance group, whose mission is to recapture and preserve the history of the Métis people through the Red River Jig mixed with traditional square dance routines now known as the Red River Dance.

Since they formed in 2002, the Asham Stompers have performed over 100 times per year. They have danced for audiences at the Winnipeg World Curling Championships, the Indian Summer Festival in Milwaukee, WI and at half-time shows for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. From Vancouver to Nova Scotia, their performances have received standing ovations.

Their unforgettable history is brought to life by an unforgettable performance.

Sagkeeng's Finest

Getting jiggy with it

Light on their feet, Sagkeeng’s Finest will grace the Stomperfest stage with their faststepping jigging routine which took Canada by storm this year, ultimately leading them to be crowned winners of Canada’s Got Talent. Hailing from the Sagkeeng First Nation, Vince O’Laney, 17, and brothers Brandon, 18, and Dallas Courchene, 17, all began dancing in their community only a few years ago.

While the young men had already been winning competitions and taking stages around the province, including performances at Asham Stomperfest, they formed the trio known as Sagkeeng’s Finest last year to participate in the largest national talent contest in Canadian television history. Their blend of traditional jigging blended artfully with modern, clogging and tap styles has created a unique and infectious style of upbeat dance.

After being cast in Winnipeg in September 2011, they participated in the live semifinals of the competition the following April against eleven other acts ranging from circus performers to beatboxers to opera singers. In their final performance, the trio danced to a mash-up of Raghav’s “Fire” and Metro Station’s “Shake It” with their fusion of styles.

Their intricate footwork and enthusiasm earned them the title of “Most Improved” as well as “Biggest Risk Taker” from the Canada’s Got Talent judges.

On May 14, 2012, Sagkeeng’s Finest was named the winner of the first-ever contest. They took home the grand prize of $100,000, a brand new Nissan GT-R, tickets for an allinclusive trip to the island of Tobago, a spot in CityTv’s New Year’s Bash and a chance to perform in a Las Vegas show.
