Ausdance WA Dance Day at Australian Dance Week Image

Presented by Ausdance WA, Act-Belong Commit and MRA and supported by The City of Perth, DANCE DAY is the official launch event to celebrate Australian Dance Week in Western Australia. For the first time in 2017, Ausdance WA will combine two of their largest annual events to present one HUGE day of dance.

Saturday 29th April at James Street Amphitheatre, Perth Cultural Centre

Dance Live Performance: 3pm – 5pm

Trigger: 5pm – 9pm

Offering a suite of exciting free opportunities to engage with dance through watching, joining in and creating your own #dancegrabs, Dance Day is sure to get you up and grooving. The fabulous DANCE LIVE performance extravaganza is an iconic Ausdance WA event and showcases multiple dance styles and performers of all ages. This is a vibrant multicultural family-focussed event that will delight audiences from all walks of life. The curated stage performance from 3pm – 5pm will feature more than 15 performance groups as well offering a workshop during interval and a live drumming finale for all to join in and celebrate!

In the evening, the focus will shift off stage and we welcome you to gather beneath the big screen for TRIGGER. Essentially an outdoor dance-karaoke jam, TRGGER let’s you nominate the playlist and uses interactive software to project your grooving body live onto the LED screen in a variety of animated forms. Featuring live flash-mob performances from Perth’s urban dance community, we encourage trained and untrained bodies to get up and dance to your favourite tunes under the stars.


What is your TRIGGER song? We want YOU to nominate your favourite dance tracks for this event – all nominated TRIGGER songs will feature on the playlist on the evening, to ensure you get your fix of soul-shifting beats. Simply post on social media using the hash tag: #triggersong 

Are you part of a street crew and want to get involved in this free event? Contact for details!


In the lead up and throughout Australian Dance Week, get snap-happy by creating your own dance clips on Instagram and use the #dancegrabs hash tag to have them included in our online film reel! Maybe it’s a rehearsal, maybe your fave song just came on, maybe you just can’t help yourself! Grab your mates and have a #dancegrabs boogie!!
