Indigenous dancer’s big film step

1 min read

TWEED Heads indigenous dancer Thomas Kelly has leapt onto the national stage.

The former Kingscliff High School student is a developing artist at NAISDA Dance College and was selected to participate in collaboration with Dale Pope, from the Australian School of Performing Arts, to film a dance clip that will be distributed to every school in Australia.

The clip features original choreography created by Mr Kelly and Mr Pope, and forms part of an educational resource pack in support of Generation One’s national school competition.

Mr Kelly said he was excited to be involved in the project.

It’s really important to get young Australians involved in ending indigenous disadvantage, so I hope this will encourage schools to enter the competition.

I’m thrilled that this clip will be going to every school in Australia, Mr Kelly said.

Such an inspiring article to start our day! Kia kaha Thomas and can”t wait to see the clip!
