Dancenorth is a contemporary dance company based in Townsville, Tropical North Queensland. An epicenter for artistic exchange and collaboration Dancenorth balances a dynamic regional presence with a commitment to creating bold, adventurous and critically acclaimed contemporary dance.
Under the Artistic Direction of Kyle Page, Dancenorth delivers an ambitious and far-reaching program including the creation and presentation of new work, national and international touring, professional development opportunities for dancers and choreographers as well as national and international residencies and research projects.
Parallel to this is Dancenorth’s education and cultural engagement program, The Enrichment Projects, which provides the framework for a wide range of reciprocal activities. Bound by an overarching ethos of inclusion, each branch of the Enrichment Projects has been designed to Inform, Impart and Inspire.
As a creative hub for choreographic development and research, Dancenorth makes a significant contribution to Australia’s cultural ecology by valuing and supporting risk and innovation as a means of extending contemporary dance as an art form.
Dancenorth is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body; the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, Townsville City Council and the Tim Fairfax Foundation.
