ALICE CAN DANCE

Alice Can Dance is GUTS’ dance in schools initiative. The only of its kind in Australia, Alice Can Dance began in 2012 and now exists in all government-funded schools in the Central Australia Region, engaging over 200 young people a year to create, rehearse and perform a large-scale contemporary dance work at The Araluen Theatre. By exposing and educating students in contemporary dance practice we aim to empower young people to realise their full potential through creative engagement, improve learning outcomes in other areas of the education curriculum, promote physical activity and encourage dialogue around teamwork and the importance of imagination.
