Our main focus is the culture of dance associated with the European exploration and settlement up to 1900. We cover the era of early exploration, including William Dampier and James Cook – both venerated by dance compositions; and then trace the early settlement from 1788, delving into both convict and elite dance. Into the nineteenth century, we follow the way dancing was vital for community celebrations, as well as playing an important role in everyday life.
