Deadly Dancing

by Linda Carr

So, why does a group of Aboriginal children take the name “Deadly Dancers”?   “Deadly” is a word used by Aboriginal people to mean awesome or proud.

This dance troupe consists of Aboriginal children growing up connected and sharing their traditional stories through dance.

The children have been performing traditional dance for 3 years and will treat us to the creation dance, show-off dance and the cleansing women’s dance on Saturday following the Welcome to Country and speeches. 

The Deadly Dancers came 2nd in their category at the VLGA Victorian Reconciliation Week Hart Awards in 2015 so we look forward to seeing this performance from our local young talent.
