Welcome to AusDancersOverseas!
Originally created to support Australian dancers and dance students when moving overseas, this platform has grown into an education + information hub, providing sound knowledge about all things health in dance – including mental health, nutrition for dancers and the adolescent dancer and the plant-based dancer, amongst many others – whilst still adhering to its original purposeb- to provide as much information as possible for dancers away from home. Thanks to all the input we receive constantly, we have been able to broaden the information available about schools and companies overseas, about typical challenges in healthcare when being injured, about life in a company versus life as a freelance dancer, auditions, administrative issues (e.g. reimbursement for auditions), and much more.
Taking care of yourself can seem complicated and overwhelming at times – especially with all the misinformation and pseudoscience available these days. While our social media accounts, Instagram in particular, are one way to communicate with you, and to write about these challenges, this website offers a deeper and more thorough insight, as well as covering many more topics.
