Mat, Akshaya, and Camryn also participated in a workshop about traditional Inuit dancing. The session was led by a woman named Tiffany who grew up in Nuuk but now lives in the Northwest Territories. All the cultural groups learned a specific dance and will join together to perform it collaboratively at the VIP galas on March 9 and 10.

The artists had another technical rehearsal at the National Theatre of Greenland. The design for the backdrop on the stage was inspired by the inside of an igloo.
