This is the 42nd year that Ausdance ACT has celebrated and promoted Australian Dance Week, boasting the largest program in the country. Both professional and community-based dance performances are on offer, in addition to workshops, classes and events aplenty.

International Dance Day on 29 April marks the start of the program, with the official opening at the Canberra Museum and Gallery. With a welcome from the ACT’s Minister for the Arts Tara Cheyne, the opening night will present Co_Lab: 24 an improvised dance performance, which emphasises the role of sound as it accompanies movement. The performance will be followed by the debut screening of the short film Hillscape.
