The dance community in Western Australia is gearing up to host the 2016 Australian Dance Awards at the Heath Ledger Theatre, State Theatre Centre of Western Australia, Perth, on Sunday 18 September. Ausdance WA is working with Claudia Alesssi, creative producer of this year’s event, to curate a truly memorable evening, showcasing Western Australian dance companies, and more.

Ausdance WA, with Co3, STRUT Dance and Performing Lines, will present the 2016 MoveMe Festival in the lead up to the Awards, taking over the State Theatre Centre from 15 until 18 September, to present performances of Western Australian and international works, Prime Cuts showing of independent dance works, TeachMe Workshops for dance teachers, ShowMe Forum, in association with Circuitwest, for producers and presenters, artists talks, and satellite events from West Australian Ballet, Force Majeure and Ochre.  MoveMe Festival passes are on sale now at the early bird price starting at $65. One pass gets you into all the main events and more, including discounted tickets for the Australian Dance Awards, as the Festival transforms the State Theatre Centre of Western Australia for a week of big new shows and big new ideas. Purchase your Festival Pass through Ticketek Australia. 

The 2016 Australian Dance Awards are sponsored by Harlequin Floors, Aon Australia, Gaynor Minden, Equity Foundation and Dance Informa, with West Australian sponsorship from K2 Dance, The Good Store, The Chapel Space, Kindy Dance Time and APS Physio. The event is supported by the state government of Western Australia through the Department of Culture and the Arts, the Perth Theatre Trust, and the Australia Council for the Arts. We are truly grateful for the support of our sponsors as, without them, the event could not happen.
