Shireen McNeilage, Operations Manager

Shireen is responsible for studio and office operations, studio rental management, website and database management, ticketing coordination, and volunteers. Before joining Dance Victoria, she worked in touring logistics for performing arts for a year, and as a theatre stage manager for 15 years, mostly in Sydney, Australia. As Operations Manager, she experiences joy from all the people Dance Victoria touches: from subscribers to volunteers, sponsors to donors, local artists to visiting dance artists. “They appreciate and value Dance Victoria and frequently tell us so.”

About her work she says that “helping to support, make and share art is the best job I can have.” In her leisure time, Shireen sings with the Victoria Choral Society, plays tennis with her husband, and enjoys walking among trees. Her favourite dance company is Alonzo King LINES Ballet from San Francisco. “We presented them in 2017 and they were captivating – strong, precise, and elegant.”
