Indigenous Hip Hop

Recommended for kids from 5 to 18

Hip hop culture has played an important role in Australian First Nations communities since the 1980s. As throughout history, African American music has become a rallying point for Aboriginal people, as the themes of oppression, racism, poverty and social instability explored by these art forms are experienced here too.

Hip hop as a musical form continues to resonate and give voice to young Australians. It helps them to express their life experiences through dance, fashion, art and music.

Australian Indigenous hip hop artists include Wire MC and Native Son 10 and 20 years ago, and current artist like Baker Boy, Dallas Woods, Drmngnow, Briggs and Adrian Eagle.

In the Indigenous hip hop dance incursion program, we focus on this vibrant and energetic dance form behind the music, to give support to the struggles still being experienced by Aboriginal young people.

Whole-school event

This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for students. 

Your entire school will explode with the infectious, electric energy generated by this joyous celebration of dance and movement.

Each year level learns a different style of dance. choreographed by our expert DANCEMOB instructors over a 60-75-minute session. The group then performs their routine for the school at a special assembly at the end of the day.

The event concludes with a whole-school FLASHMOB, led by all DANCEMOB instructors, who encourage students, parents and teachers to join in. 




* If you have a specific curriculum outcome or theme you'd like us to include, we can design a program just for you, or choose from the list below.

We teach each dance routine through an approach called Liyan (connection to country and spirit) by revisiting ‘memories’ through movement. This reflects the tradition of dance conveying animals or cultural themes, brought to life through ceremony. Each group has the opportunity to perform their own ceremonial dance.

The youngest children learn an age-appropriate Dreaming story of Waa (the crow) and how he was burnt by fire. The children then perform this story through dance and acting.

Junior-level children learn Bapa, a song made famous by Geoffrey Gurrumul, who sang about the loss of his father. This fluid dance embodies the snake (Biami) through a beautiful flow and dream-like essence.

Children in the middle years learn a hip hop piece performed to a song by DRMNNOW, ‘Indigenous Land’.  The dance connects hip hop with the movements of Australian animals, displaying creativity and power.

Children in the senior years learn the Bookarrakarra (Beginning of Time), a story of the place before anything existed. Our instructors share the Dreaming story of Wandjina and how the Gyorn Gyorns (first beings) came to be. Students then create a traditional or contemporary dance showing an understanding of what they have learned.
