Get QLD Dancing

Advocating for Dance in Queensland

Tickets on Sale NOW!

Over two days we are bringing together dance practitioners and community specialists to move and talk about how we can get more Queenslanders dancing. The convergence will cover 5 focus areas to discuss inclusivity, access and participation;

LGBTIQAP+
OLDER PEOPLE & INTERGENERATIONAL
CALD (Culturally and Linguistically Diverse)
SENSORY
MOBILITY.

Dance practitioners are invited to explore how to make their practice more accessible to diverse communities and how to develop their practice for specific populations. Other practitioners will have the opportunity to build their knowledge of the social and health benefits of participation in dance and how they can incorporate dance into their practice.

It is important to acknowledge the complexity of people’s lived experiences and recognise that these focus areas are broad, overlap considerably and may apply to individuals in different ways and at different times across their life.

These sessions will be co-facilitated by dance practitioners and community partner representatives to generate meaningful discussion and experiential learning around each focus area. Overall this convergence will work to foster partnerships, develop a shared language and inform dance participation strategy moving forward. Knowledge built from ‘Get QLD Dancing’ will feed into a dedicated issue of Ausdance QLD’s publication IN/FORM and the creation of a database for dance participation opportunities.
