Welcome to Dancehouse,

Dancehouse is the centre for independent dance in Melbourne. Through its programs of residencies, performance, training and research, Dancehouse is a space for developing challenging, invigorating, and socially engaged moving art. Dancehouse is a genuine tool for the dance-maker, a catalyst for developing new audiences and a facilitator of meaningful alliances and mobility schemes, in Australia and internationally.

Support Dancehouse to support independent dance

Dancehouse is a place for exceptional art and for relentless exploration.
It is a place where artists and audiences intersect, connect and grow.
It is a site where thought is nurtured, borders are pushed and new territory is challenged.

Dancehouse fiercely stands up for the belief that art and its transformative power can make a real difference for an individual, a community and a society.
In this house, we are proud to nurture and support independent dance 
to be a catalyst for inspiration for everyone.

Great independent art making cannot be made possible without sufficient time, space and resources to nurture its promise and growth.
Your support is vital!
