      In The Balance is the first Youth Ensemble work directed by Michelle Ryan.

      In The Balance is a celebration of youth and who these young dancers are. In the Balance highlights the joys and struggles of navigating relationships within a peer group. We all search for acceptance and interaction with others but the road can be bumpy and challenging. It can also lead to strong and respectful friendships and relationships. Through a series of vignettes, we look at how people behave and interact to each other in a social setting. We started with four simple words that can have extreme consequences: flirtation, rejection, inclusion and exclusion.” Michelle Ryan

Along with the founders of the Dance for PD program, we believe that people with Parkinson’s deserve to work with knowledgeable and experienced, professional dance teachers, and that these professionals are best equipped to provide the most comprehensive and artistically enriching experience for participants. Many members of Parkinson’s SA have already indicated their eagerness for customised dance classes which emphasise their abilities, not their restrictions. Parkinson’s SA is seeking dance teachers who are passionate about promoting and developing dance in the Parkinson’s community to run pilot Dance for PD programs in Adelaide and beyond using their training from the workshop.

    • Announcing National Dance Forum 2015

      Dates: 19 March 2015 - 21 March 2015
      Location:

      Announcing National Dance Forum 2015
      &
      call out for proposals

      Forum partners, Ausdance National and the Australia Council for the Arts, are pleased to announce the third National Dance Forum (NDF2015).

      NDF2015 will take place in Melbourne 19-21 March and will once again, be held in partnership with Footscray Community Arts Centre. 
      NDF2015 takes place in conjunction with Dance Massive.

      NDF2015 is pleased to announce Andrew Morrish in the role of Facilitator. Andrew brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to this role and you can look forward to hearing some of his ideas regarding the NDF2015 content, a little later in the year. Stay tuned or, check out Andrew’s website for information on his current movements.

      In 2015, the National Dance Forum seeks to:

      instigate intelligent and insightful engagement between Australian dancers, makers, researchers, writers, producers, advocates and educators.

      - create the most significant platform for dialogue across the Australian contemporary dance sector
      connect Australian artists with local, national and international communities
      - recognise the responsibility to acknowledge the past whilst asking important questions about the future of Australian dance practice
      - provide an immersive, participatory experience, offering delegates a rich and valuable opportunity to inspire new ideas and or, refresh existing ones, in an environment tailored to complement the unique qualities of the dance sector.

       

      With this in mind, NDF2015 will address the inherent concerns and realities affecting current professional practice in Australia and will be framed by 3 specific lines of focus:

      - Transforming the form: changing structures and their effects

      - The subtleties and nuances of innovation. 

      - Discourse: How is dance written about, spoken about and communicated?

      >Jump to further information on NDF2015 lines of focus

      More details regarding the 2015 program will be released later in the year with the full program and speaker list to be published January 2015.

      The NDF2015 program is guided by the collective input of the NDF Curatorial Panel - Matthew Day (independent artist, VIC), Julie Dyson (dance advocate and advisor, ACT), Margrete Helgeby (independent artist, WA), Raewyn Hill (Artistic Director, Dancenorth, QLD), Catherine Jones (Executive Producer, Chunky Move, VIC) and Frances Rings (Bangarra Dance Theatre artist-in-residence, NSW);
      who join Roslyn Dundas (National Director, Ausdance), Carin Mistry (Director, Dance, Australia Council) Kath Papas and Kristy Ayre (NDF2015 Co-Producers).

      Bali Sacred Dance Retreat – Dancing with the Sacred Wheel of Life

      This retreat brings together three things which we love and have found to be of value in our own “Wheel of Life” journey and which we warmly invite you to share with us and to celebrate on Mount Batukaru at the Bali Mountain Retreat.
      • To dance in a Sacred way is to enter into a communion of heart, mind, body and soul
      • To retreat invites a safe inner space for contemplation, revelation, transformation and illumination
      • To be in Bali, is to enter a place of beauty which is honoured and Blessed in the Sacred traditions of that culture.
