Local indigenous youth dance troupe Kids Caring for Country (pictured) are kicking up their heels after netting a prestigious invitation to perform at the biennial Laura Aboriginal Dance Festival on Cape York Peninsula.

The troupe, which has been learning and practising Aboriginal dance and storytelling for the past three years, will travel with teachers Deirdre Currie and Dennis Walker Jr to the 21 June festival, which boasts 500 performers and an audience of more than 5000.

There’s only one catch: the group still needs additional funding to be able to make the trip. Any local individuals or organisations that can help out should contact Deirdre on 0413 974 785 or email [email protected].
