Children learn about traditional dance movements – who, when and why communities danced. Each program offers one presenter face to face guiding children and educators to have their face/hand painted in ochre and to learn some dance moves. Educators are given the opportunity to find out what is a culturally appropriate way of embedding dance into their service. All materials are included.

Single session: Basic introduction to traditional dance, either Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, with practical activity.

Three-session program: Introduction to traditional dance, either Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander, with an opportunity to learn and revisit a simple dance.

Shakealeg program: An in-depth investigation of traditional Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander dance techniques (This program offers the choice of 8-10 weeks of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander dance OR 4-5 weeks of both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander dance), with an opportunity to learn and revisit a dance and a digital copy of the song learnt.
