More about Big Dance
Big Dance commissions acclaimed choreographers to create a dance work that can be learnt by anyone in the world, through online tutorials and community workshops.

In 2018 Big Dance engaged thousands of people with one unifying choreographic piece, performed across local, regional and metropolitan communities.

Big Dance 2018 is choreographed by acclaimed choreographers Frances Rings and Craig Bary, with original music by Huey Benjamin. This beautiful choreography has elements of Indigenous Contemporary Dance, and carries the theme of unity.

Big Dance Maroondah is organised by Ausdance Victoria and proudly supported by Maroondah City Council through the Arts & Culture Grant 2018/19.
