I’m the office and projects manager for Ausdance National. I have been involved in the dance industry for many years. My work at Ausdance National includes customer service, systems management, sales and subscriptions, and writing/editing for the website. I was a BA (Dance) student at Adelaide University in the early 80’s and worked at Ausdance NSW 2007–2009. I have been with Ausdance National in Canberra since 2006. I am also the nominations coordinator for the Australian Dance Awards, which means I do a lot of behind-the-scenes management to do with the selection panel and the nominating and voting procedures. I compile the citations for the shortlist, am responsible for updating the ADAs website and work closely with the host Ausdance office who is producing the event each year.
