This, the fourth book in the series 'Celebrating Dance in Asia and the Pacific', explores the current dance scene in Australia from a wide perspective that mirrors the creative engagement of artists with Australian culture and the landscape. It looks at Indigenous dance, choreography beyond theatre, youth and community dance, Australian dancers' versatility and risk-taking. The comprehensive essays recount immigrant influences, the legacy of the Ballets Russes and Bodenwieser companies, dance on stage and screen, education and training and the story of Ausdance -- the unique nation-wide voice and political advocacy organisation for dance.

Stephanie Burridge lectures at Singapore Management University, Singapore and is a dance critic, author and Editor of the Routledge series 'Celebrating Dance in Asia and the Pacific'. Juile Dyson is National Director at Australian Dance Council -- Ausdance.
