Dancehouse stands on what always was and always will be Aboriginal land. We pay our respects to the traditional owners of this land, the Wurundjeri peoples of the Kulin Nation, to their Elders past and present, and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.

Fine Lines

Fine Lines is contemporary movement practice for mature dancers. Class incorporates improvisation and experiential practices and draws from ballet, Graham and Cunningham techniques. Participants are encouraged to adapt the movement to suit their own physical requirements and personal interests.

Class material is low impact with combinations designed to stimulate cognitive function and muscle memory while the creative and artistic challenges support healthy, intellectually stimulated and artistically vibrant older dancers to reach their potential.

Dr Katrina Rank is a leading Australian educator and dance artist, contributing to national and international movement education outcomes. A ballet and contemporary dancer by training, Katrina maintains a performance and teaching practice and received an Australian Dance Award for Services to Dance Education in 2018.
