About Ausdance WA
Established in 1977, Ausdance WA is a membership organisation providing support and advocacy for all forms of dance. We are part of a network of Ausdance state organisations delivering integrated programs across the country, anticipating industry issues and providing innovative and inclusive responses. The national office is based in Canberra.
Our membership program is here to support dancers through each step of their careers. By keeping in touch with the individuals working within our sector, we provide informed and effective advocacy for dance in Western Australia.
We endeavor to raise the bar for dance education in Western Australia through developing a range of professional development training programs for both studio and school teachers. We pride ourselves on being a resource hub for our members, producing and collecting useful resources for the Ausdance WA library.
Ausdance WA is a proud supporter of Healthways Act-Belong-Commit message. Our annual schedule of projects presents an array of free opportunities to get involved and make dance part of your every day.
Ausdance WA proudly produces a number of events each year encouraging and acknowledging innovation and engagement with dance in Western Australia. Our major productions and events include Act-Belong-Commit DANCE LIVE and TRIGGER in the CBD for Australian Dance Week and the biennial MoveMe Festival.
