Djarragun College Aboriginal dancers at Townsville Festival (1)

Our Culture

Added by Oz Outback

Description Aboriginal students from Djarragun College, an indigenous school near Cairns, Far North Queensland, Australia, perform traditional dances during the Townsville Cultural Fest. They enter the main stage with a sweeping dance, followed by a fast "Worrama" dance. The next dance is the "Cassowary Dance" about the large flightless bird from this region; then the "Mosquito dance" about trying to keep mosquitoes away while hunting in the mangroves, followed by the fast "Three Beat" Shake-a-leg dance. After that they move off the stage.
