Resources for dance teachers, independents, studios and the wider dance community.
Complimentary to the extensive Education Program, Ausdance WA has a range of teacher specific resources, connections, links and opportunities to access.
Maths Through Movement
Ausdance WA has partnered with Creatives Moves to develop a series of Lesson Plans that integrate dance and mathemeatics for the West Australian Curriculum. These resources are available to purchase through the Ausdance WA Store.
Dance Knowledge was formed to connect the dance profession with resources to improve their training in a way that is accessible to them. Dr Luke Hopper and Dr Shona Erskine work to translate research into easy-to-understand formats that can be viewed any time. Videos range from 1-3 hours in length and offer a variety of topics.

West Australian Oral History of Dance
The WA Oral History of dance collates and records stories from significant West Australian dance artists and collaborators to preserve for the future. This project builds on a previous research project which is kept at the Battye Library.
Ausdance WA wishes to thank Lotterywest for funding for this Oral History Research and to Ms Varyna Bromilow for her work in collating this project. Thanks also to Ms Lynn Fisher and Joan Pope OAM for their invaluable advice and support and to the panel who selected the interviewees: Joan Pope, David Hough, Rita Clarke and Maggi Phillips including Jo Pickup who did a splendid job interviewing Sue Peacock in Varnya’s absence. Thank you to all the interviewees for their time and candour.
Ausdance WA is currently in the process of transferring the collection to a permanent online location. If you urgently require a recording please email firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain a copy.
