The Wagana Aboriginal Dancers perform traditional and contemporary dances inspired by the beautiful Blue Mountains and NSW Central West country. They honour and respect the Darug, Gundungurra and Wiradjuri peoples as the traditional custodians of the lands they dance on. Wagana perform at Festivals and events in the Blue Mountains, nationally and internationally. They have recently performed in Glasgow, Denmark, Hawaii and Canada. They have a dance in education program for pre-schools, primary and high schools and offer a youth dance program for local Aboriginal and non-Indigenous young women and girls.
The artistic vision of Raven Spirit Dance Society is to share stories from an Aboriginal worldview. By sharing this work on local, national and international stages, Raven Spirit Dance reaffirms the vital importance of dance to the expression of human experience and to cultural reclamation. Raven Spirit Dance aims to explore how professional artistic work is responsive and responsible to the community it is a part of and to continue to redefine dance’s place in diverse community settings. Raven Spirit is Vancouver-based yet indelibly tied to the Yukon through its projects and inspirations, as their Artistic Director, Michelle Olson is from the Tr’ondek Hwech’in First Nation.
