Red Cliff, WI (NNCNOW.com) – A Red Cliff dancing troupe had the chance of a life time last week.

The Red Cliff Native Expressions dance troupe performed at the Packers Game on Sunday.

Their halftime performance at the football game has given them some extra recognition on the reservation.

The Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa has asked the dance group to be inducted into the historical wall at the tribe's casino.

The group will present a photograph of the Lambeau Field performance to the tribe.

"There is beauty in all types of dance, even Native American hoop dance," Native Expressions dancer, Gretchen Morris, said.

The group wants to share the Native culture by teaching traditional hoop dancing to anyone who is interested including Non–Natives.

They meet weekly in Red Cliff, Wisconsin.
