Dancehouse

Dancehouse is Australia's premier centre for independent dance. Our role is threefold: to advance independent dance artists, to build dance audiences, and to develop the artform itself. With artists and audiences, we are co-creating a context for independent dance, in its diversity, to be accessed and appreciated. Together, we are nurturing dance making and dance thinking; we are building dance literacy and dance's legacy.
