Program Details

The Chickasaw Nation Dance Troupe was formed in 1992 to educate, preserve and restore Chickasaw dance traditions. By keeping this tradition alive, the dance troupe is able to share the ancient arts of shell shaking, stomp dancing and songs with people from around the world. In this respect, the dance troupe serves as a goodwill ambassador for the tribe. The Chickasaw Nation Dance Troupe has performed at universities, festivals and ceremonial gatherings across the United States.

A daily stomp dance demonstration takes place at the Chickasaw Cultural Center located in Sulphur, Oklahoma. See the Cultural Center website for times, locations, and more information: www.chickasawculturalcenter.com/.

Stomp dance and cultural demonstrations can also be scheduled for schools or other special events. Any opportunity to share knowledge with younger generations is welcomed by the Chickasaw Nation Dance Troupe. If anyone is interested in scheduling a stomp dance demonstration, please contact the Cultural Resources department.

The dance troupe also holds an open practice, open to anyone who would like to attend. The dance troupe practices the first and third Thursday of each month from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at Lazer Zone at 14601 County Road 3544 in Ada, Okla.
