"For more than a decade, I have been writing about the performing arts in Melbourne, covering everything from the smallest independent productions to the most lavish commercial spectacles. In this field, Temperance Hall’s contributions stand out as absolutely unique and invaluable. And there is no doubt that their continued dedication to excellence will further enrich the cultural fabric of our city.”—Andrew Fuhrmann | Researcher & Chief Dance Critic, The Age

Temperance Hall is at a crossroads and we need your help to continue. At the end of 2023 we lost state and federal funding, but we are determined to keep our doors open for Melbourne’s fearless dance and performance scenes.

Your support today will keep us operational while we rebuild the organisation through 2025 and beyond.

Your tax-deductible contribution will directly support the special work we do at the Hall:

  • $25 affords an emerging artist one hour of studio time to create brave new work
  • $50 helps us mentor a recent dance graduate in their first professional engagement
  • $100 can support an independent artist to realise their cutting-edge production

As the amplifier of experimental, emerging, and LGBTQIA+ dance and performance in Australia, Temperance Hall refuses to bow out; we refuse to give up on our community, our artists, and our mission to nurture radical creativity.

Thank you for believing in this mission, and for your generous support. Please note: "BalletLab Assoc" will be the name on your statement and receipt.
