Saltwater Dance and Didj

Chifley Public School, NSW

Who would have guessed the first fruits of a bush tucker garden would be a didgeridoo group?

Launched in 2016 with the help of Brendon Moore from Sydney’s Botanical Gardens the didgeridoo group for boys has since blossomed to include a group of girl and boy dancers together known as Saltwater Dance and Didj.

From the sun kissed sands of Coogee Beach to Sydney’s largest stadiums, Saltwater Dance and Didj have performed at Randwick Council’s Koojay Festival and corporate events at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Today Brock Tutt teaches the didgeridoo to the boys and the girls and boys learn traditional dances from Uncle Matt Doyle and Kirsty Beller. No stage is too big or too small for the troupe who have performed in community centres, nursing homes and school assemblies. 

A highlight has been performing at Allianz Stadium during a NSW Waratahs game.

Pauline and Kirsty Beller who are Dharawal people, organise the children for these events.

Specially designed performance tops and sashes by Lewis Hennessey reflect the connection the performers have with the sparkling saltwater surrounds of Maroubra Beach and Botany Bay.

Worn by both the dancers and didgeridoo group, the costumes will ensure our performers look smart and keep them warm at outdoor school and community events.

The group are aiming to fund 40 tops and sashes of different sizes.
