Our mission is to build local, national, and international connections and resilience through dance for all to thrive.

Support Us

Dancenorth are cultural ambassadors, deeply rooted in place and bound by community.
Your support will enable us to expand our creative offerings and share them far and wide while deepening connection between communities.​

Our mission is to build local, national, and international connections and resilience through dance for all to thrive. As Dancenorth continues to transform, we commit to creating space to connect people and place, nourishing the bodies, hearts and minds of all those we encounter. With intention, integrity, and care, we curate programs that consciously engage communities far beyond our geographic reach. Dancenorth has a conscious approach to our work, our company and our people. A key tenet of our strategic plan is to sustainably and ethically manage our resources for the benefit of future generations of Queensland artists and community.

Donations have a significant role to play in our business sustainability, bolstering the difference between public investment and the cost of running an ambitious and deeply impactful regional arts company. Dancenorth Australia is a registered charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission, and has DGR (deductible gift recipient) status. Every gesture of support, large or small, is deeply appreciated. As a not-for-profit arts organisation, donations over $2 are tax-deductible. 

We would love you to be a part of Dancenorth’s vision to support, enhance, and inspire those we encounter as we continue to bring artists and communities together through dance.
