Presented by Ausdance

With support from our sponsors and the Ausdance network, Ausdance National is reintroducing the Australian Dance Awards in 2020, covering two years, 2018 and 2019. Nominations will close on Monday 22 June.


Due to the COVID-19 crisis, nominations were postponed until Australian Dance Week. We now have pleasure in announcing that nominations are open, and will close on Monday 22 June. There will be a small charge for each nomination: $25 for individuals nominating, $60 for funded companies.

Our colleagues at Ausdance Victoria hope to present the Awards in collaboration with Ausdance National, at a date to be confirmed. The scale of the Awards presentation will depend on available resources, but we hope to make it a celebratory event for Australian dance and its creators, performers and collaborators.
