Dancehouse understands that this is a period of great uncertainty amidst rising concerns regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus), which has now been declared a Pandemic by the World Health Organisation.

While Dancehouse remains open for the time being, we are actively following the Victorian Government’s regulations with respect to public gatherings and spaces.

Dancehouse regrets to inform patrons that Eko Supriyanto’s upcoming Asia TOPA season, Ibu-Ibu Belu (27-28 March), will not proceed due to travel bans and tickets will be refunded.

However, Dancehouse remains open for our artists and teachers for rehearsals and classes. Should we be required to apply complete lockdown later in the week, where Dancehouse will close its doors to the public, we will ensure visitors remain informed.

What we are doing
We are ensuring rigorous enhanced cleaning across the ‘House and positive hygiene practises are encouraged with adequate hand-washing facilities available to our visitors and staff.

We will continue to adhere to the advice and evaluate decisions in this fast changing environment, in discussion with our partners, government stakeholders and health experts.

What you can do?
Please join us in taking extra steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19: wash your hands regularly preferably with alcohol-based hand soap, avoid close contact with anyone with a cold or flu-like symptoms and please stay home if you feel unwell for the safety of other patrons. Thank you for your continued support and we will continue to provide updates on any developments.
