Throughout the year, Bangarra offers performances for schools in selected venues across Australia, with post-performance 'In Conversation' sessions wherever possible. This experience allows students to deepen their connection with the company and learn about the artistic process, as well as Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.

Wilay is the Wiradjuri word for Brushtail Possum, given to us by Uncle Stan Grant Senior.

Our Wilay program enables Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander school students to access a dedicated matinee performance, at a discounted price. The performance is often followed by an 'In Conversation' with some of the dancers and creatives. Wilay allows us to build a relationship with the next generation of those who share the rich culture and history that is sewn through our storytelling; it's important to pass these stories down.

Our standard schools’ matinee at the Sydney Opera House, open to students of all backgrounds, is unfortunately unable to go ahead in 2021 due to renovations on-site during the day. There are limited school student tickets available to selected evening performances in June at a discounted price of $25. Schools are advised to book early to avoid disappointment.
