Mzuri 25yr celebration Tote  

Mzuri Dance is celebrating 25 years of bringing people together from culturally diverse backgrounds to dynamically contribute to the cultural + artistic landscape of Melbourne's live performance scene, since 1995.

Our classes are being held on the lands of the Wurundjeri people and I wish to acknowledge them as Traditional Owners. I would also like to pay my respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging, and Aboriginal Elders of other communities.


Mzuri Dance acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the Traditional Custodians of the land and acknowledges and pays respect to their Elders, past and present and emerging.
