Ausdance National COVID-19 Impact Survey for the Dance Sector.

This survey provides an understanding of the immediate and medium-term needs of dance professionals in order to develop sector-specific responses to the impact of COVID-19.

Ausdance as a collective body is collecting state and national data to help support the sector during this difficult time. We need strong sector-specific data to inform and lobby for solutions. Ausdance is working both for members and the broader dance community and welcomes your input at this challenging time.

Please note: this survey is currently being channelled through Ausdance Queensland who have been working with professionals in the industry and with the Ausdance network as this branch was best positioned to do so at this point in time. However, the survey is national and we ask all dance professionals based in Australia to complete it.

Before completing this form please read our policy on data collection and sharing.
