DANCERITES

What is Dancerites?

Dancerites is Australia’s national First Nations dance competition which aims to ensure important cultural knowledge including language, dance, skin markings and instruments is shared from one generation to the next. 

Since its inception in 2015, more than 1300 participants from 95 dance groups have joined the hallmark First Nations event that helps to revitalise Indigenous leadership, and showcase the richness and diversity of First Nations culture.

Dancerites celebrates the continued cultural dance practices of Australia’s first peoples. The competition is open to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities who have or would like to develop a dance group, and performers of all levels of experience can participate.

Presented by Sydney Opera House.
