On Course project helps to cross-fertilise dancers from different university dance courses around Australia: they work together, discuss, challenge, create, perform. Canberra dancers returning from full time study interstate get to reconnect with audiences here. And for audiences, it is a great opportunity to see where young dance artists are going — and in the forum, to hear from them about their work, and perhaps to influence that direction!”
