Ausdance NSW is the peak body for dance. We provide advice, advocacy, and dance programs in different contexts and environments, both directly and indirectly and in partnership with other state and federal government departments, local government authorities, dance companies, organisations, educational institutions, businesses, and dance studios. 

Our role has never been more important than in the past 4 months during the COVID-19 crisis. During this time our team has held over 200 meetings and 50 facilitated meetings with the sector (S2M, Independent Artists, and Dance Studios).  This has meant speaking with over 500 people in 3 months ‘face to Zoom’, most of whom are first contacts – engaging with people for the first time to support them through this crisis. 

There are no grants for advocacy. 

This advocacy expands beyond the bounds of our current funding, with the Ausdance team working beyond our means to make significant changes for the dance sector, not just for now, but moving forward to a future which is better than the one we just left.

Less dance is being presented and supported than ever before. We need a strong voice for dance in NSW.  

Your support will directly contribute to:

  • Making dance visible on State and Federal government policy agendas
  • Being able to provide members with advice for funding applications
  • Assisting us to continue our programs such as,
    • (DAIR) Dance Artist in Residence
    • NAISDA + DAIR First Nations Residency
    • Creative Ageing Forum
    • Big Dance 2020
    • Marketing support for independent artists to support us to support them 

No donation is too small:

  • $10 will fund a social media campaign for an independent's artists work
  • $35 pays for one hour of grant writing advice over the phone
  • $150 pays for an artist from an under-represented community offer their expertise at a Facilitated Sector Meeting – Ausdance NSW mechanism for consulting with the sector
  • $500 will host a ‘think tank’ for the dance and seniors sector to  plan a Creatively Ageing forum
  • $1000 pays for the production and access costs for a DAIR artist 

The Ausdance NSW team is passionate about the role dance has to play in the arts ecology of NSW and Australia wide. We ask for your support so that we can continue to support the dance sector.
