Independent Dance Hub

Independent Arts Hub

Ausdance NSW is committed to working with and for the independent dance sector in NSW by providing Professional Classes, Workshops, Training, Aspiring and Mentoring Services. 

Ausdance NSW connects and empowers the dance community by facilitating a comprehensive program that encourages cohesion and growth. We have created a number of training opportunities for 2014 that foster connections with the independent dance community.

This is a fluid discussion that requires a rigor and investment from the community together with Ausdance NSW. We look forward to engaging with you through these various platforms and together creating a diverse and fruitful space for independent dance practice.
This year we have been able to offer the following training opportunities:

Beyond the Training

Ausdance NSW in partnership with Critical Path is offering one masterclass with Sam Chester. This platform was created in response to members wanting a substantial experience beyond a normal technique based class. 

Applications for the 2015 program open soon.

Previously Beyond the Training was conducted by Anouk van Dijk and Rebecca Hilton.

See here for more information about the 2014 facilitators.
