Welcome to the LINK Dance Company website.
LINK Dance Company is the graduate-dance-company – unique in Australia – based at the internationally renowned Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA), located in Perth at Edith Cowan University.
Dancers who have completed a three year tertiary dance course can apply for admission to LINK’s one year postgraduate program. It offers a select group of graduate dancers a unique transition year between training and ‘the profession’ whilst still supported by a conservatory environment.
Originally established in 2002 by Chrissie Parrott as an innovative research project within WAAPA’s Dance Department, LINK evolved into an ongoing resident company with a commitment to the creation of new works; and national and international touring. Since its inception the company has been guided by Artistic Directors: Chrissie Parrott, Olivia Millard, Justin Rutzou and Michael Whaites.
