inspiring dance workshops – QL2

We were very pleased to be able to present the inspiring dance workshops to 13 young artists engaged in the QL2 Dance program in Canberra in late September. QL2 offers Australian dance graduates opportunities to develop professional skills and plan their career. This is the first time the inspiring dance workshops have been delivered at QL2, and hopefully not the last. Kristina Chan and Amelia McQueen directed the program and from all accounts it was a tremendously productive and ‘inspiring’ 3 days.
