Donate to Tracks Today

"Tracks is an Australian institution and the way the organisation nurture people to grow and reach their potential is amazing.  In growing and reaching their potential I also include the emotional, personal and mental journey a person (takes) through being part of Tracks. There is nothing like this organisation anywhere.  What we are able to contribute this time around is so small compared to the difference you make to people’s lives." - Anthony Burridge, Tracks Donor


Delighting Audiences

For almost 30 years Tracks Dance has been delighting audiences with award winning productions telling stories anchored in Darwin and the remote community of Lajamanu, stories unique by their location but also with universal resonance, stories of war, human values, impossible love, homecoming, migration, the ages of life and our deep connection with nature.

Tracks’ annual Darwin Festival creations and biennial Milpirri Festival reflect the company’s longstanding commitment to engage with community and support the development of arts workers and dance artists in the Northern Territory.

Philanthropy has become vital to Tracks financial sustainability. Our mission is to give voice to Northern Territory culture expressed through all members of the community with a passion for movement, from the young to the old, Aboriginal and multicultural. We rely on the generosity of our donors to ensure the next generations of our dance talent continue to be nurtured. In joining Tracks Giving Program, we invite you to be game changers for the many voices who wish to make dance a part of their life.

We believe older adults hold valuable cultural information that only comes from age and experience. Their wisdom guides much of what we do, ensuring our focus on dance as a whole of life activity remains core to our thinking.

The Northern Territory is one of Australia’s most culturally diverse places, with over 100 nationalities and around 50 social, cultural and religious organisations. Our work is enriched by all that this has to offer.

Lajamanu is an Aboriginal community about 960 kilometres south-west of Darwin. Tracks artists have been working with this community since 1988. Milpirri is a major bilingual, bicultural performance that has grown out of this creative collaboration.

Get on the Dance Floor

People dance for so many different reasons. We believe that everyone should have the chance to enjoy dancing, making dance, and to creatively participate in the development of their own local culture.

The Search for Innovation

Creating multiple pathways to engage with research and development processes; in a place where dance is culturally diverse and there is no available Tertiary dance training. This is our way of ensuring our cultural future by sourcing and supporting new and emerging dance artists.
