Hi, I’m Anja Ali-Haapala.
I am a Brisbane-based audience researcher and dance practitioner.
In 2018 I am undertaking a Dance Artist Residency with Ravensthorpe Regional Arts Council, teaching weekly Ballet for Seniors classes at Queensland Ballet, co-chairing the Early Career Researchers Community – Dance, and consulting on research and evaluation projects for Ausdance Queensland, Supercell Festival of Contemporary Dance, and Brisbane Writers Festival.
The areas that I am really passionate about are:
- understanding audiences and enriching audience experiences,
- contemporary and community dance practice, and
- supporting emerging dance researchers.
I am always interested in connecting with people with similar interests and am available for projects and lectures in these areas. If that sounds like you, please do get in touch!
