BlakDance is the national peak body for Indigenous Dance in Australia. Our membership features independent choreographers and community practitioners.
For over a decade, BlakDance has consistently delivered generative and transformative sector events and has contributed significantly to the development of the small to medium Indigenous dance sector.
BlakDance Residency Program
The BlakDance Residency Program exists to grow the sector, connecting our communities to opportunities to engage and explore dance practice. Delegates of the National Indigenous Dance Forum 2017 prioritised the need for ‘more space and time to develop contemporary dance practice’. The program invests in this through offering residencies to develop performance work in a supportive environment for Queensland independent artists.
