MW INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, January 22, 2009 A-7 AUSTRALIA DAY 2009 A member of Descendance dance troupe which will perform at Henley Park. Tradition and celebration A TRADITIONAL performance by Descendance, a famous Aboriginal dance troupe from the Aboriginal Dance Company, will be a highlight of Burwood's celebrations. The troupe performs Ngaru, which means ''shake a leg'', a dance style prevalent in the Cape York Peninsula in North Queensland. The day kicks off at 2pm with the citizenship ceremony for 90 new Australians. There will be an Aboriginal smoking ceremony, accompanied by traditional didgeridoo playing and dancing and from 3pm the park will come alive with a barbecue provided by the Rotary Club, food stalls and rides including a mobile rock climbing wall, a mechanical surfboard and slam dunk bungee ($5 ride all afternoon). On stage there will be performances by kids' favourite the Wild Aussies and the popular guys from Drum Beats, who will keep the crowd buzzing with as many as 40 drums playing at the same time. If you've always wanted to pat a crocodile then don't miss out on the Crocodile Encounters Reptile Show where you can also expect to see lizards, turtles and snakes. Jazz band Stringybark will perform. The recently developed off-leash zone will be open for dog owners and their four- legged friends to enjoy with an obedience showcase. If you think your furry friends can pull off an outfit, why not enter them in the Pooches Fancy Dress Competition. Dog Whisperer John Richardson will pick a few dogs from the crowd and show owners how some small details such as tone of voice can change their four-legged friend's behaviour. Entry fee for the dog events is $2 and all proceeds will go to the local SES unit.
