COVID-19 has impacted dance communities across Australia. As the pandemic unfolded in early 2020, the Ausdance network (led by Ausdance Queensland) sought to capture data about the immediate and medium-term needs of dance professionals in order to develop sector-specific responses to the impact of COVID-19.

I was engaged to analyse and report on data collected through a nationwide survey.

The resulting reports present results pertaining to financial, practical and mental impacts of COVID-19 as experienced by Australian dance practitioners and businesses in early 2020.
