Reporting on our successes in 2022

The Annual Report covers all our advocacy, professional development, and educational programs over the past year. 2022 was 12 months of whirlwind activity as Victoria emerged from the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic. It was a year that saw Ausdance VIC achieve record levels of connection with the sector through memberships and communication channels. We also reached over 9,000 Victorian school students through the Blue Sky Dance and Supercharged! programs.

Advocacy is at the heart of what we do, and as Executive Director Michelle Silby says, Ausdance VIC “worked hard to put the sector’s issues on the agenda” in front of politicians and decision-makers in more than 30 meetings across 2022.

For many of our members and supporters, the Australian Youth Dance Festival was the highlight of 2022 after the disappointment of the postponement in 2021. AYDF hosted 128 young dancers, 20 industry leaders and 27 teachers and facilitators across a week of dance, discussion and delight.

The Ausdance VIC Registered Training Organisation also thrived in 2022, achieving a renewed five-year accreditation and adding several new units of competency to its range of dance offerings.
