Dance Hub SA is South Australia’s home of Independent Dance.

Our Purpose

Is to be a catalyst, resource, and advocate for a dynamic Independent Dance sector.

Our Vision

To be a leading creative incubator, integral to the Dance sector.
We provide highly valued support to independent artists
and unleash new levels of innovation and collaboration within our community.

Our History

The space for independent dance makers at Lion Arts Centre was initiated by Leigh Warren in 2016 initially as LWDance Hub with Amanda Phillips taking on the role of Associate Curator in 2017.

In 2018 we became Dance Hub SA with Amanda Phillips in the Artistic Director role until 2023. Significant opportunities initiated, facilitated and produced by Dance Hub SA during this time include Dance.Focus, X, YAP, Associate Artists, Asia-Connect, The Move, Mind the Gap, Dance Rebooted, Seed Residencies and AIR.

Since 2018 we’ve engaged over 400 artists through our development programs and supported the presentation of 38 new works and over 60 creative developments

2024 Onwards

Dance Hub SA continues to be a creative incubator providing artists with development opportunities, supporting and empowering dance makers and their collaborators, inspiring innovation, and facilitating the expression of a diverse range of dance ‘voices’.

We are currently in a moment of change, without a studio space, operated by a voluntary board and project by project funding. We are looking into how we can be more flexible, responsive, in tune with artists needs and inclusive of diverse practices and people. And how we can create a more connected network, community and sense of belonging.

Our ongoing commitment is to supporting independent dance makers in South Australia.

Dance Hub SA acknowledges the Kaurna people as the custodians of the Adelaide region and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to the living Kaurna people today.

We also pay respects to the cultural authority of Aboriginal people visiting/attending from other areas of South Australia/Australia.
