Doonooch Aboriginal Dancers

The Doonooch Dance Company showcases unique performances which combine traditional and Aboriginal dance. The group has toured nationally throughout Australia and internationally to many countries. In 2000, the Doonooch Dancers were part of the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony and were feature performers at the World Indigenous Forum in Noumea. The company was founded in 1991 by singer-songwriter and traditional lore keeper Robert McLeod (Monaro and Tomakin/ Wandandian), who initially established programs for Aboriginal men and youth which recognized culture as the touchstone of Indigenous wellbeing.
