Building connections and resilience through dance for all to thrive

For Community

Community Experience program
Our Community Experience Program builds community connections and participation through projects, workshops, classes and experiences that invite people to go deeper than dancing.​​
About
Dancenorth meets people where they are, connects them in a space of belonging, and invites them to connect with dance as simply, or seriously, as they desire.​

Built on an ethos of invitation, permission and exchange, Dancenorth’s Community Experience program is designed to dismantle the many barriers to dance, experienced by specific communities and by us all. The program is driven by dedicated professional dance artists, expertly skilled in creating and delivering unique and relevant dance experiences for diverse communities including; people who are differently-abled and neurodiverse, young people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, older people and people who are culturally and linguistically diverse.
