Pierre Chartrand & Rapetipetam

Rapetipetam is an exceptional fusion of music and dance, energy and refinement, tradition and creation. Musicians and dancers share the stage, intermixing musical notes and steps in perfect harmony. Step dancing is done to the tunes of rhythms that are sometimes well-known, while others are more contemporary. Traditional steps are used with routines that are created by the dancers. The majority of musical pieces are original compositions by the Domino group. The dancers delight in combining improvisation and choreography that result in contemporary sounding music which is grounded in popular culture. Past appearances at the New World Festival have been enthusiastically received and we look forward with great anticipation to their return. Find out more online, here.
