Classical ballet is accessible and beneficial for all ages. There are many advantages of studying ballet including an awareness and improvement of posture, a more musical ear, ease of movement through flexibility and co-ordination, an air of grace, and an appreciation of a beautiful and time-honoured art form.

Folk Dance Canberra Incorporated has been a lively presence in Canberra since 1994. Our founders, Christine and Jim Battisson began teaching folk dance in 1991 with a single class at Corroboree Park Hall in Ainslie. With numbers increasing to almost 100, the decision was made to formalise the group and in 1994 Folk Dance Canberra was incorporated. In May 1999, having outgrown the hall and in order to offer more classes, Folk Dance Canberra moved into their current premises in Hackett. The hall was officially opened as “Folk Dance Canberra Hall” by Mr Bill Stefaniak, MLA, Minister for Education, Sport and Recreation. Christine and Jim have since retired to Port Macquarie, where they now run folk dance classes under the auspices of the University of the Third Age.

What is 6th Position? First and foremost, it is the parallel position of the feet. Secondly, it is the Canberra dance studio for adults. As far as we are concerned, if you can place your feet in a parallel position, then you can dance – regardless of whether you are a new, continuing or returning dancer. We believe being an adult should not stop you from having the opportunity to invest yourself in an art. 6th Position prides itself on being an adult-friendly environment that continuously strives to meet your needs for connection, creativity and challenge. It is your freeing space to explore or push your boundaries through dance. We want to empower you to discover the strength and artistry within your body, at your own pace.

Canberra Dance Theatre (CDT) has a history of connecting professional dance art with community dance. It grew out of the National University Dance Ensemble (NUDE), established by Graham Farquhar in 1970, which in 1977 was under the leadership of Diana Shohet, Lorna Marshall and Graham Farquhar. In 1978 a new organisation was created, Canberra Dance Ensemble, with Stephanie Burridge joining the artistic team. With the departure of Diana and Lorna later that year, Stephanie took on the leadership role, being named the first Artistic Director. CDE was incorporated in 1981, and in 1989 the name was changed to Canberra Dance Theatre to serve a wider and more theatrical vision. Since the beginning CDT has brought together significant Australian dancers, choreographers, musicians and designers, including Dr Stephanie Burridge, Dr Elizabeth Cameron Dalman OAM, Kai Tai Chan, Julia Cotton, Patrick Harding-Irmer, Anca Frankenhauser, Beth Shelton, Anna Smith, Dr Cheryl Stock OAM, Andris Toppe, Wendy Wallace, Bernadette Walong, Graeme Watson, Tammi Gissell, Sue Healey and Amalia Horden.
