We were absolutely thrilled this evening to receive a Canberra Critics Award presented by Elizabeth Cameron Dalman at the Canberra Museum and Gallery.

‘Ausdance ACT - for its initiative in bringing together dance filmmakers from the ACT and South Australia in October 2021 and September 2022 in Dance.Focus. Where nine short films were commissioned and shown, thus widening knowledge and understanding of Canberra’s dance culture beyond the ACT.’



As part of our Workshop Series in 2023 we are planning to host a FREE Online Dance Insurance Workshop and we want your help in shaping it to ensure it is as helpful as possible for the local dance sector. The workshop will be suitable for independent artists, dance teachers and studio owners. Do you have any burning questions regarding dance insurance? Let us know and we will aim to get these topics covered, email your suggestions to act@ausdance.org.au. Stay tuned for more details.
