On the Move - Schedule a Visit!

Didgeridoo Down Under (Australian Music, Culture, Character Building) is returning to your area this spring. We're scheduling New York schools for the week of May 16-20, and possibly May 9-13 and May 23-27.

Didgeridoo Down Under is a high-energy, Australia-themed show that combines music, culture, art, science, storytelling, comedy, character building, anti-bullying and audience participation. The didgeridoo, usually a hollow tree trunk, has been played by Aboriginal Australians for at least 1,500 years, and is know know for its otherworldly sound. But DDU is much more than music. It’s interactive, educational, motivational and super fun -- great for all ages! We also offer how-to-play didgeridoo workshops.

DDU is aligned with NYS Learning Standards and The Dignity Act, and is listed on every major BOCES arts-in-education directory in New York. Videos and references are on our website.
