Bendigo movers and groovers will join other regional performing groups in Castlemaine for the Big Dance on Sunday.
The Big Dance is a biennial festival of dance that sees thousands of people with one unifying choreographic piece.
Piece are performed in regional and metropolitan communites after groups have taken community workshops to learn the five minutes of choreography.
Z Fit Studios teacher Robbie Brassington has worked with 30 people to learn this year’s dance and will perform with regional performance troupes Lady Fun Times, E.motion21, Over the Moon, Movement Zone, Castlemaine Circus and Castlemaine Ballet.
Indigenous choreographer Frances Rings, who designed this year’s dance, said it represents indigenous bloodlines and culture, and everyone coming together.
“We are lucky to live in an incredible country that still emits ancient energy and incredible living culture,” she said.
“As we acknowledge the red earth as our spiritual centre, Big Dance will connect everyone through movement and bring people together to share their stories and experiences with pride and from any dance form.”
The Big Dance Castlemaine starts at 2.30pm at Victory Park on Sunday.
