Community

GET QUEENSLAND DANCING!

Ausdance Queensland is working towards a world where all Queenslanders have access to inclusive dancing opportunities. We know anecdotally and through health research that recreational dancing leads to healthier and happier communities. We also believe that dancing for the sake of movement and creativity is just as important.
