Graham Kotowich wins Indspire Métis Youth Award

Northern Ballet Dancer Graham Kotowich is to be honoured with the Indspire Métis Youth Award for his achievements in dance and as an outstanding indigenous Canadian role model. He will be travelling back to his own province of Saskatoon, in the heart of Canada's Great Plains, to receive his award on 15 Feb.
When asked to pass on a few words of wisdom to the younger generation, Graham responded ‘I think it's important for youth today to find what they are passionate about and to think of what is unique about them. They should use this to create new skills and to always be proud of what they are doing.’
We are all very proud of Graham and are privileged to have him as one of our dancers.
