All Victorians have access to opportunities to experience and engage with dance.

As the Peak Body for dance in Victoria, Ausdance VIC wants to see the following outcomes:

  • a First Peoples lens shaping all aspects of Ausdance VIC policy, strategy and programs;
  • dance and the dance sector thrive in remote, rural, and metropolitan areas of Victoria;
  • all Victorians have access to participate in, and engage with, dance;
  • greater diversity and inclusion in dance; a range of people, places, and practice across the state engaging in dance as a career and/or for creative, recreational, and health purposes.


To advocate for, create, support and promote opportunities for dance in Victoria, and invest in its ongoing development.

Ausdance VIC will continue to provide high-level strategic advice and vision for the sector. Ausdance VIC supports individuals, companies, and organisations in a coherent ecology of arts services, enabling its members and partners to flourish, creating connections and opportunities to increase the capacity of the sector, and delivering activities for, and in,
communities across Victoria.
The organisation works across all levels of dance practice to promote creativity, health, lifelong learning/engagement, and social well-being agendas, contributing to the wider community’s physical, mental, social, and economic wellbeing.
