Broome safeSPACE™ dancers in demand!

Published: July 29, 2021 12:45pm

Girls who learnt how to dance at Broome PCYC's safeSPACE™ program are in demand to perform at community events.

Attending weekly dancing sessions, the girls learnt a mix of traditional and contemporary dances with the help of Yawuru elder Dianna Appleby and Social and Emotional Well-being team members from the Kimberley Aboriginal Medical Services.

Having had the pleasure of performing for the Kimberley Aboriginal Medical Service at the Social and Emotional Wellbeing Regional Managers Conference, the girls have been asked to perform again at six different events during Kullarri NAIDOC Festival in Broome.

The girls showed great commitment, attending dance rehearsals twice a week to learn these complex dances. Working with female role models in their community taught the girls to have confidence and pride in themselves too.

We couldn’t be prouder of these girls, they have done a tremendous job and look amazing in their traditional dresses.
