You have to see the magnificence of the Kevin Locke Native Dance Ensemble live to really appreciate why this ensemble is so exceptional. With Kevin Locke’s longstanding mastery of traditional Lakota music and dance and the added vitality of dances and songs from the varied traditions of the ensemble performers, there is no other show like it.

Concerts offered by the Kevin Locke Native Dance Ensemble feature historic, authentic dance and music from the artists' traditions: Lakota, Comanche, Choctaw, Oneida, Ojibwe and Cree. In performance, the presentation is visually compelling. The addition of dramatic lighting effects adds visual interest, but the dances themselves strictly honor the tradition. Surrounding the dance are educational explanations woven into stories and narratives by master storytellers Kevin, Edmond, and Thirza, folded into a seamlessly integrated program that focuses equally on intriguing education and inspiring entertainment.
