Ausdance VIC is excited to launch a series of unique and dedicated online professional development seminars for the dance sector, Inside Dance, next month. Taking place every week this August, Inside Dance has been designed through sector consultation to address the common issues those in the dance industry face – both in and outside the studio.
Ausdance VIC General Manager, Robbie Carmellotti Says:
Inside Dance is part of the organisation’s strategic response to the hardships of the COVID lockdowns.Given the struggles our industry has gone through over the last 18 months we want to give everyone practical tools and professional insight to assist the sector with a confident return to business.
Inside Dance will help those within the sector to grow the knowledge and skills crucial to running a successful dance business and navigating the wider dance environment. The topics covered have been carefully selected in response to changes in regulations and guidelines that can easily go unnoticed by those operating within the sector.
The first professional development block starts on 3 August, and attendees will be joined by industry experts who will present on common business issues and concerns identified by Ausdance VIC.
Mr Carmellotti Says the seminars are about rebuilding resilience in the dance sector:
We want everyone to leave the seminars feeling secure in their knowledge on the environmental shifts that have occurred and have the confidence to make the changes that we need to pioneer a sustainable dance future together.
