ZEST : Dance for Wellbeing

Now offering thirteen classes a week across Canberra, the ZEST: Dance for Wellbeing program kicks off for 2024.

ZEST classes are designed for adults who want to keep their body and brain active and healthy, regardless of their mobility, skill or age. Have fun and feel good!

Dance is a unique vehicle, naturally combining multiple approaches to movement and exercise, building confidence and an improved quality of life. Taught by a team of highly experienced and dedicated dance artists, you will experience movement to music, much of it taking place seated in a circle of chairs, as you’re guided through a carefully planned program of dance activities.


AN Statement for the Enquiry into the National Cultural Policy


Ausdance National were invited to represent at the Enquiry into the National Cultural Policy in July. Cathy Adamek (Director ACT) was able to attend with Michelle Silby (Director VIC) and delivered a two minute response drawn from the original AN submission, recent consultation initiated by Julie Englefield (Director QLD) and a review of the government's Revive policy document with Jacob Williams (Chair AN). 

A tremendous combined national network effort!

Our main objective was to draw to their attention the lack of reference to dance in the policy.
