Philip Channells / Dance Integrated Australia (DIA) engages people of diverse cultural backgrounds in an inclusive environment. Led by a co-operative of associate artists with and without disability, we specialise in high quality dance education and performance projects, advocacy for disability arts practice, and professional development for dancers, teachers and artists working in schools, community groups and day centres.
Dance Integrated Australia was established in 2012 by Creative Director, Philip Channells (former Artistic Director, Restless Dance Theatre 2009 – 2012). Channells is considered one of Australia’s leading experts in disability-inclusive dance practice. He is fiercely committed to the development of thriving artistic cultural communities that integrate people from diverse age groups, backgrounds and life experience.
