Ausdance National is pleased to announce the continued support of Harlequin Floors as Principal Sponsor of the Australian Dance Awards (ADAs).
World leaders in advanced flooring technology for dance and the performing arts, Harlequin Floors supports (literally) thousands of Ausdance members on a daily basis.
Mark Rasmussen, Head of Industry Relations for Harlequin Floors said, ‘Every year, the Australian Dance Awards act as a showcase for the amazing breadth of work produced in Australia from exquisitely produced classical to the most exciting experimental. Such work deserves to be celebrated and so it is with much pride that 2018 marks eight years that Harlequin Floors has supported its friends at Ausdance in the presentation of these awards, seven of those as its main sponsor’.
The ADAs will be held at the Brisbane Powerhouse on 8 September 2018 and Mr Rasmussen will present the Outstanding Performance by a Company Award. This award acknowledges excellence in performance and production in any dance style or genre.
This year’s nominees are Co3 for The Zone, Dancenorth for Attractor, STRUT Dance for William Forsythe’s One Flat Thing, Reproduced and Queensland Ballet for Raw (triple bill): No Man’s Land, Glass Concerto and Ghost Dances.
Harlequin Floors have been working closely with the dance community for many years to develop a range of floors suitable for all forms of dance.

Trust and innovation are at the heart of everything they do.
Harlequin's experience and reputation are founded on the manufacture and supply of a range of high quality portable and permanent sprung and vinyl floors and ballet barres for dance studios and performance spaces.
