More and more dancing and more places to dance in Western Sydney: that’s the good news from Martin del Amo’s report in this edition of RealTime. The development of arts centres west of the city is one of the happy legacies of the Carr Labor Government. Campbelltown Arts Centre has a dance curator; in Parramatta FORM Dance Projects presents works in partnership with Riverside Theatres; and Blacktown Arts Centre includes dance in its performance program. Not only do these offer opportunities for dance artists and communities in the region but also engagements for Sydney-based artists as choreographers, teachers and mentors, enlarging the sense of community in NSW dance. There’s further good news from Angharad Wynne-Jones, the Creative Producer for City of Melbourne’s Arts House—Dance Massive will make its third appearance in 2013 thanks to the enduring partnership between Arts House, Dancehouse and Malthouse. It’s pretty much a sell-out event and a great opportunity for artists, audiences and presenters to connect. If you want to keep track of Australian contemporary dance, take a look at RealTimeDance on our website: this invaluable resource provides free access to all of the dance articles and reviews in RealTime from 1994 plus profiles of leading choreographers, video interviews and a feature on dance on film. Dance. Dance. Dance.
