Vote 1 Dance

Dance is the oldest and most intimate form of human communication: before we talked, we moved. The Party seeks to bring dance back into the everyday; to reignite ancient and vital functions that help us to connect to ourselves and each other. For this, we value and respect the traditional dancers of this land, the Ngunnawal people and draw inspiration from the integration of dance in Indigenous culture.

Increased artist employment

We fuel the growth of professional dance and performing arts in Canberra and work towards sustainable careers for dance artists. We aim to achieve up to four full time performing artists in the ACT by 2020. That’s an increase of 400%.


The Party collaborates with cross-disciplinary arts, business and academia for every major show. Through these intersections, we present contemporary thinking and bold ideas that connect to you.

Audience engagement

The Party reaches diverse audiences in non-traditional and everyday spaces. Place and site is part of the creative work we make, enabling unique physical and spatial connections to our ideas and to you.

Dancing voice

Our performances communicate social, environmental and political issues. We are not afraid to provoke, celebrate, entertain and exhilarate. We want to move you.
