The peak body representing the interests of Queensland’s dance community.
The dance sector develops and thrives within an environment where new ideas can flourish; artists can continue to explore and excel; communities can see and participate in dance; where dance is an integral part of every young person’s education; and dance artists can pursue sustainable careers within the sector.
Ausdance Queensland advocates for and directly supports the making of independent dance and career pathways for dancers.
The association was established in 1992 and provides professional advocacy and industry development for Queensland dance through strong local, regional, national and international networks. We work to bring recognition to the many roles that dance plays in the cultural life of Queensland and to maximise opportunities for practitioners.
Our services and programs address the needs of dance companies, independent artists, community dance practitioners, emerging artists, educators, individuals and the broader community. We also act as the state dance industry's primary advocate and advisory representative in regards to government policy, sector planning and industry initiatives.
Ausdance Queensland is a not-for-profit incorporated association that has deductible gift recipient status.
Ausdance Queensland is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, part of the Department of Premier and Cabinet. Ausdance Queensland acknowledges the traditional owners of the land, and the Elders, past and present.
