Dance congress in AdelaidePanpapanpayla 2018 will present a large gathering of dancers and dance educators at the University of South Australia’s City West campus and at Adelaide College of the Arts. Set for July 8–13, 2018, Panpapanpayla is being organised by daCi (dance and the Child international) and WDA (World Dance Alliance) Global Education and Training Network.


This event will focus on four interwoven themes: dance, gathering, generations and learning. Summarised by the Aboriginal Kaurna word “Panpapanpayla”, it will honour Australia’s rich Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander dance practices, as well as indigenous dance cultures from around the world.


Babies, young children, school and university students, dance artists, community and cultural workers, parents and caretakers, as well as educators, will be involved as participants and presenters come from diverse backgrounds and countries all over the world.


The congress will include intercultural dance experiences across generations and new learning through presentations, social interaction and debate.
