First Peoples Youth Dance Workshops

Commencing in April 2021, Chunky Move in partnership with Goolum Goolum Aboriginal Cooperative offers a First Peoples youth dance school holiday workshop program (ages primary to high school). This program runs in Donald during the April school holidays, Stawell during the June school holidays, and Horsham during the September school holidays. Hosted by Chunky Move’s Ngioka Bunda-Heath (Wakka Wakka, Ngugi, Birrpai) in collaboration with various First Nation guest male facilitators. Participants will engage in movement workshops consisting of contemporary technique, and hip-hop classes and learn fusion routines inspired by stories shared by Wotjobaluk Elders and Senior Community members.

In 2023, the First Peoples Youth Dance Workshops have grown to include a new partnership with the Aboriginal Wellness Foundation and the community of Wyndham Vale. Ngioka teaches movement workshops to Youth, Teens, and a Women’s group in quarters two and four out of the Wunggurrwil Dhurrung Centre.
