Australian Dance Adjudicators


Welcome to our association for Australian dance adjudicators! 

Established in 1993 and incorporated in 2004, we are a group of passionate individuals who share a love for dance and a desire to support the development of dancers and adjudicators across various genres and levels of expertise.

Our association is dedicated to promoting excellence in dance adjudication and providing opportunities for dancers to showcase their skills and be adjudicated in a fair and constructive environment. We believe that every dancer deserves a chance to have their talents recognised and appreciated, and we are committed to helping make that happen.

As dance adjudicators, we bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to the association. We have worked with dancers of all ages and backgrounds, and we understand the challenges and rewards that come with pursuing dance. Our members are committed to staying up-to-date with the latest trends and techniques in the industry, and we are always seeking to improve our own skills as adjudicators.

Our association is founded on the principles of integrity, fairness, and respect. We strive to provide objective feedback to all dancers, regardless of their skill level, and to maintain a supportive and positive atmosphere at all of our events. We believe that every dancer has something unique and valuable to offer, and we are dedicated to helping them reach their full potential.

Whether you are a seasoned dance adjudicator or just starting out, we welcome you to join our association and become a part of our community. Together, we can help elevate each other, foster opportunity, create training experiences, collaborate on projects and above all share the love of the art of dance and create opportunities for dancers to thrive.
