What Is This?

Ausdance NSW is committed to working with and for the independent dance sector in NSW by providing Professional Classes, Workshops, Training, Auspicing and Mentoring Services. Did you know that Critical Path and FORM Projects was started by Ausdance NSW?

For you, 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 rigour 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 are able to offer the following training opportunities:

DAIR (Dance Artist in Residency)
For you, Ausdance NSW provides Artists a space to hold a creative development, rehearse a current work, develop their own practice and try out ideas without the pressure of producing a product.

As well this year Ausdance NSW is able to offer 2 classes per week as part of our DAIR Program. Please click here to find out more about our current recipients, when they are happening and more information on upcoming application rounds!

Beyond the Training:
For you, Ausdance NSW in partnership with Critical Path is offering two masterclasses this year with prominent artists: Rebecca Hilton and Anouk van Dijk. click here
This platform was created in response to members wanting a substantial experience beyond a normal technique based class.

As well we are working directly with the community to endorse different classes around Sydney, so please let us know when you
•    have a residency and want to open up class to others
