Create. Inspire.

‘There’s this feeling, a feeling when you watch something … it makes you feel like you’re happy that you’re alive.’
Year 10 student – 2 One Another, March 2012

We are committed to  educating and inspiring future generations of dancers and audiences.  Our dream is for every young person in Australia to experience Sydney Dance Company at least once in their life.

In March 2011, we held our first dedicated school matinee supported with teacher resources and a Q&A session at Sydney Theatre. Since then we have continued to present to full-houses of captivated students. We would like to hold these matinees everywhere we perform.

We are not funded to provide education so we need your help to bring world class contemporary dance to as many young people as possible.

A tax-deductible donation to Sydney Dance Company will enable us to:

  • give free tickets to disadvantaged schools for performances
  • offer school matinees in more places
  • conduct workshops in schools
  • provide behind-the-scenes experiences on regional tours
  • invite talented tertiary students to train beside our professional dancers
  • develop teacher resources
  • offer primary school students the chance to discover the joys of contemporary dance – a first for Sydney Dance Company
