Ausdance ACT Open Classes for Adults are back for 2021, commencing Thursday 25th February.

Classes 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.

Due to COVID travel restrictions we have had to cancel our Summer Intensive with Jesse & Joel Rasmussen.

The upside is that we are pleased to announce that in the place of an 'in person' intensive that we have commissioned Jesse and Joel to create an online Mentoring Masterclass across the genres of hip hop, tap and commercial jazz. This resource will be provided to our dance community free of charge and will include audition tips, choreographic tools and ideas, advice on how to create your own shows and more. If you are interested in receiving a free link to this resource once it becomes available please join our mailing list here using the link below and stay tuned!'

Dancing siblings Jesse and Joel Rasmussen have an impressive list of credits to their names. Jesse is best known for his role as creator, performer and producer of hit show The Tap Pack touring internationally whilst Joel has spent his professional dance career performing with some of the biggest names in pop including Taylor Swift, Jessie J, Ke$ha, Redfoo and Kylie Minogue. Both Jesse and Joel have choreographed for shows such as The X Factor and So You Think You Can Dance.

Ausdance ACT's Covid-19 Small Grants Fund is open for applications. This fund has been established to provide modest but useful one-off financial assistance to local dancers experiencing negative impacts on their dance activities as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
