Natalie O’Connor is a dance artist and teacher who has a long history working with Incite Arts. Natalie has worked on in town and out bush dance programs, and helped create and facilitate the first Southern Ngaliya Dance Culture Camps with Incite and the Warlpiri Youth Development Aboriginal Corporation in 2010.
Natalie is the dance teacher at Centralian Middle School (CMS) and has been inspired by the creativity and commitment of the Year 7 dancers! Maddi, Honey P, Honey A, Lucy, Lachie, Jamilee, Dusty, Ahnika and Kyani-May are dedicated choreographers, creators and dancers, who are always looking for an opportunity to sneak into the dance studio to work on their new creations! ‘Unbroken Land’ has been the perfect opportunity for them to develop their own sense of style and movement; to collaborate together and weave their abundant ideas into a single, unified piece.
This is the first ‘Unbroken Land’ the CMS students have taken part in. The young dancers are all looking forward to the show and have enjoyed the creative process.
When asked what he would like to get out of the experience, Lachie said “I’d like to learn more about our surroundings and to be able to dance about where I live and where I was born.”
