The Australian Dance Festival is held at Sydney Olympic Park - home of the 2000 Olympic Games.  The venue is about a 30 minute drive West of Sydney and is well serviced by buses and trains.  The workshops, shows & expo will take place at Quay Centre  which boasts a fantastic stage with arena seating.  


Part of this highly versatile venue will be transformed into an arena theatre with a tiered seating capacity for 2,500 people - so you can sit back and enjoy the performances in style.


Workshops  will also run at Netball Central.  Each workshop room will have the capacity to easily accommodate at least 300 dancers.  Yes!  We've heard your feedback and there will be no more squishing into packed workshop rooms!
