This year, the Australian Dance Awards celebrate the many people who sustained their craft and artistry, and entertained us in clever, brilliant and comical ways, finding joy even as they struggled to continue during 2020-21 and the Covid-19 epidemic.
Congratulations to Australian Dance Award winners, announced online on Tuesday 8 December, spanning achievements across 2018 and 2019 in twelve categories. The 2019 Awards are for works produced in 2018, and the 2020 Awards are for works produced in 2019.
This year's Australian Dance Awards will cover two years, 2018 and 2019, with winners to be announced online on Tuesday 8 December 2020. The complete short list, with background information and citations, can be found on the Ausdance National website.
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.
Ausdance National regrettably announces the cancellation of the 2019 Australian Dance Awards. Ausdance National will still partner with Tracks Dance Company to deliver the National Dance Forum (NDF2019) in Darwin. The two-day forum and awards will provide the national dance community with an opportunity to gather in the unique setting of Darwin.
