Dancing as well as football will be on the minds of a group of Marian Catholic School students who will perform at the big game between the North Queensland Toyota Cowboys and Manly on Saturday night.
The Marian Dancers Group will give members and supporters at the game the chance to watch and hear about Torres Strait Island dance and its importance in traditional and modern culture when they are special guests at the crucial round 26 NRL clash at 1300SMILES Stadium.
A feature at all Cowboys home matches in the 2014 season and supported by the Australian Government, Cultural Corner features a series of come-and-try activities, displays and information promoting North Queensland’s Indigenous culture.
“Cultural Corner at the Cowboys’ NRL clash against the Sea Eagles on Saturday night will provide the many families and children who come along to the stadium with an educational and entertaining experience focusing on traditional dance and its importance within Indigenous cultures,” Cowboys’ community relations manager Fiona Pelling said.
Cultural Corner will be located on the western side of 1300SMILES Stadium and will be open for an hour from 6.15pm-7.15pm.
