A Call to Dance

A FREE participatory dance workshop for young, local women.

21 Oct – 27 Oct

What moves you? How do you move? 

Indigenous dancer and choreographer Amrita Hepi invites you to meet her and workshop a movement that is all about you.

Amrita will then borrow your movement and create a dance that is given back to the place it was made in: Wollongong.

A Call to Dance is a participatory workshop for young women. Through time spent one-on-one answering a series of questions, Amrita will work with you to create a movement or a gesture that articulates something about you. Something uniquely your own. 

Amrita’s work explores the importance of dance, the idea of ownership around a dance move, and how we all move together in society. She is a professional dancer, writer and activist descending from the Ngapuhi tribe in Northern New Zealand and the Bundjulung people in northern New South Wales.

Come and have a yarn, a cup of tea, or share a story. Share your move and help create a unique dance sequence.


Local women between 13 – 30 years of age (age limits are not strict) are invited to register for a 45 minute one-on-one workshop with Amrita Hepi. Please note that only 40 places are available. 
Workshops take place between 21 – 25 October 2017 at IPAC and other locations around Wollongong.
