WAGANA ABORIGINAL DANCERS

Under the direction of Wiradjuri dancer Jo Clancy, Wagana perform contemporary and traditional Aboriginal dances inspired by the landscape and creation stories of the Blue Mountains and Central NSW West country in Australia. They honor and respect the Darug, Gundungurra & Wiradjuri peoples as the traditional custodians of the lands they dance on & aim to show their love of sharing culture through dance, music & story telling.
