Gumaraa dance performances and music are a vibrant and captivating way of showcasing Australia’s rich Indigenous culture.
Traditional dance was usually performed at ceremonies for a number of different reasons – one being to ensure a plentiful supply of plant and animal foods. The dances would imitate the movements of the animals they hunted.
Our dance performances are paired with traditional Aboriginal Music, which includes the Didgeridoo, clapsticks, and traditional singing. The music often imitates the sounds of animals. Traditional Aboriginal music is used to mark special occasions and to pass down stories from generations to generations.
