Go On Tour With Tracks

With work stretching back to 1988 Tracks has created many dance performances and activities. With our unique Australian geographic positioning, we are renowned for our radically local approach to making our dance works. Our company members are drawn from our community, rich with diversity in age, cultures, beliefs and styles. Tracks Dance celebrates intercultural and intergenerational differences. As we do not tour our work, we invite you to take a virtual tour through this site.

The Dance of Belonging

Tracks Artistic Co-Directors David McMicken and Tim Newth have conceived and directed many iconic works over the past decades. This work celebrates the spirit of individuals and groups, and the place they live.   Iconic Tracks Works

Everyone's Dance Story Starts Somewhere

Working with young Territorians, has developed a stronger dance community. Drawn from diverse backgrounds our youth participants bring to Tracks an array of dance styles and experience.   Eras of Youth Dance

A Whole of Life Activity

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.   Older Adults Home Page

Culturally Diverse Voices

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.   A Culturally Diverse Voice

Moving Forward Together Hand in Hand

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.   Lajamanu / Milpirri Home Page

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.   Participation Projects

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.   Research and Development Programs
