Wild Moves on the Surf Coast
Community drum and dance ensemble...if you can ride the swell, you can jump on the beat! 
Wild Moves inspiration comes from indigenous cultures as a way of celebrating Mother Earth in all her mysteries of life through singing, drumming and dance theatre. We are a community group drawing from the African Diaspora and her ancient connection to ancestral spirit. We love getting together to support benefit gigs for celebrating cultural diversity, human rights and the environment. Jacqui and Immanuel Dreessens lead us in some fun events like High Tide Festival, Aireys Open Mic, Bellbrae Mayfair, WearArtrageous, Anglesea Music Festival, Cowrie Market, Rhythm of Africa, Pako Fest. Come and join us and jump on the beat or get us to play at your next Wild Moves party for kids, teenagers or the young 50 year olds reaching wisdom status. 
To much fun! You name it we’ll create it!
