Ausdance ACT is thrilled to partner with Dance Hub SA to present Dance.Focus 2021, a dance film initiative supported by Ausdance SA.

This commission is designed for choreographers with a track record in dance film making to challenge, resonate and engage with screen dance.

4 artists, 2 from SA and 2 from the ACT will be awarded $1,000 each to assist with the costs.

The 4 x commissioned dance films will premiere online by Dance Hub SA & Ausdance ACT in September 2021.

Let's celebrate dance together!

Ausdance ACT Open Classes for Adults are held at Canberra Dance Theatre and are a tasting plate of different styles offered in two week blocks for six weeks each term. Hip Hop, Indigenous, Flamenco, Burlesque, Jazz, Afro Funk and so much more.

These classes bring together Canberra dancers to share, network, try different styles and most importantly have fun. We understand that it can be challenging to commit to a term so our classes are structured to support both casual and ongoing attendance.

Open Class is for adult dancers of any genre. Classes are provided in a safe and welcoming environment. 

Term 3 schedule coming soon!
