Ausdance ACT is a not-for-profit registered charity which has been providing dance services to the ACT and surrounding region for over 40 years.  We provide high quality, accessible and inclusive dance programs, from across all genres, which engage and inspire dance makers, performers, audiences, and other participants in the ACT and surrounds. 

Our services include:- support for independent professional dancers; help with career pathways for emerging artists; professional development and performance opportunities; and promotion of dance and dance education.  Ausdance ACT has special interests in the professional sector, youth, dance education and inclusive access to dance opportunities.

We run two main areas of programs 

  • Programs mainly funded by the ACT Government – Dancers in Schools, First Nations Dance, Open Classes, LINK-d, Australian Dance Week and Professional Dance Sector Opportunities (workshops, networking opportunities and events, teaching opportunities, talks, industry mentoring, artist in residence support, marketing support and advocacy).

  • Our biggest program – Youth Dance Festival (Dance Fest) – is 90% not funded by government. This program provides a unique,
    non-competitive, accessible dance experience at the Canberra Theatre for high school and college students and their supporters and audiences.  

The Ausdance ACT Inclusion Public Donations Fund aims to keep Dance Fest student participation costs and audience tickets affordable, so that Dance Fest can remain as inclusive, welcoming and accessible as it always has been. When you donate you will be joining others who donate their time as volunteers throughout the year and at individual events. 

Last year sadly, due to COVID, Youth Dance Festival couldn't run at all and this year has been subjected to restrictions on participants and schools.  Help us re-build this iconic and vital youth performing arts festival for 2021!!

Your donation directly supports inclusion and access for young people who want to dance and who participate in Youth Dance Festival.
