Every step a vibrant story

Our aim is to make dance accessible to all - from watching a story unfold on stage, to learning dance, and professional ballet training. We aim to reach far and wide with events, and to take you beyond the stage immersing you in the stories that move you.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we work and perform. Long before we performed on this land, it played host to the dance expression of our First Peoples. We pay our respects to their Elders — past, present and emerging — and acknowledge the valuable contribution they have made and continue to make to the cultural landscape of this country.
