The Corroboree is a ceremonial gathering of Aboriginal people. There are some strict unwritten regulations which attendees have to follow. At corroboree, Aboriginals interact with Dreamtime ancestors through dance, music, costumes and body decorations. Outside guests are not permitted to attend these ceremonies without the elder’s permission.
One type of corroboree does cover all the social needs. There are corroborees for various purposes such as educational for children’s learning, death of a person, initiation and others. Dance is an integral part of Aboriginal culture. It includes stories of the ancestral beings who are the creators of the universe. Dancing is learnt at an early age.
Corroborees have religious connotations to relate individuals with the ancestral beings. Although the attendees and organisers are responsible people, they must get final clearance from the elders. Nobody is ever allowed to make any unpleasant comment on the participants or performers.
