To ensure we can adequately address this feedback and to meet the additional safety and logistical challenges of COVID-19, we have decided it is not possible to present Dancerites in 2022.
We will take the opportunity from August 2022 to continue to consult further with participating dance groups and communities to act on your suggestions and ideas. This will ensure that Dancerites continues to provide an opportunity for coming together in the spirit of acknowledging, maintaining, sharing and platforming culture, so we can deliver the event safely and respectfully in 2023 and beyond.
I remain committed to the legacy of Aunty Rhoda Roberts and the stage she created for culture through Dancerites. We remain as dedicated as ever to this significant national event that celebrates the ways in which the world’s oldest continuous culture continues to evolve and thrive.
We look forward to presenting Dancerites in 2023 in the Opera House's 50th anniversary year and celebrating Tubowgule the land on which the Opera House sits as a significant space of First Nations song, art, dance and story.
Thank you for your understanding and we will be in touch soon to share more about Dancerites in 2023.
In the meantime if you have any questions or require any further information please don’t hesitate to contact us at email@example.com.
