Deaf in Dance

Experience the vibrant and rhythmically charged world of the Deaf Indigenous Dance Group (DIDG), where the art of movement becomes a powerful expression of culture, identity, and resilience


As a proud Deaf First Nations dance troupe, the DIDG are nationally renowned for their stunning dance talent and perform regularly at cultural and arts events around the country. Spanning over 27 years of community impact and engagement, the DIDG is a testament to the universal language of dance.
