Studio Access Program:

Dance Victoria supports the work of local dance artists through its Studio Access Program with provision of up to one hundred (100) hours of free and subsidized studio rentals for a single identified local artist-driven project each year. Under the terms of this agreement, the dance artist will be allocated sixty (60) hours of free access and forty (40) additional hours at five dollars per hour ($5/hr). Any additional hours will be charged to the local artist at Dance Victoria’s commercial rate. Studio access for public showings of work in progress may be subject to commercial rates.

For more information, you can access Dance Victoria’s Studio Access Program Policy here.

To qualify, dance artists are required to meet with Dance Victoria’s Executive Producer to discuss their project by emailing him at [email protected].
