Today on That’s AWSM! we’re following Kira, a 17 year old Anishinaabe youth, and Brittany LeBorgne, who plays Zoe on Mohawk Girls, as they put on their dancing shoes and try their hands (feet?) at a tap dancing class! After tearing up the dance floor, these two adventurous gals will kick up their heels on a white water rafting adventure! There won’t be much relaxing as they try to navigate some seriously WILD waters!

You may recognize him from his roles on Blackstone and Delmer & Marta, or you may have heard that he’s produced a few films and web series himself, but it’s time to get to know DARCY WAITE as host of That’s AWSM! Outgoing, sporty, goofy, warm, and entertaining, Darcy is down to try any and all of our AWSM activities… unfortunately he doesn’t often get to! He can recite every single line from every Will Ferrell movie ever made, and will only drink coffee from Tim Horton’s, but there is nothing he loves more than meeting teens from communities all over Canada and helping them live their best AWSM lives – which makes him the perfect guy for the job!
