A nation dance for country and culture

The dirt was stopped, the dust was kicked, songs rang out and after it was all said and done, a little bit of rain fell from the sky.

Around 30 dancers came together at the dance ground near the Cowra Nature Based Adventure Playground on Sunday as a part of "Nation Dance", joining thousands in other Indigenous communities across the continent to highlight the importance of culture and community.

Steve Taylor from Dinawan's Connection, who organised Cowra's event, said people came from areas such as Dubbo, Young, Wagga and the south coast to join in the dance.

"It was a good turnout of non-indigenous and Indigenous people," he said.

"We performed ones [dances] from all over country really, ones we learn over time."

He said it was great that Cowra and the wider Wiradjuri community could join others in one of the biggest coordinated expressions of culture on record.

"It was a pretty humbling feeling to be part of that and having the rain to follow was even better," he said.

"I think everyone just danced for country and community, bringing everyone together and costs nothing to do, just to dance."
