Marketing & Media



To enact a culture of consciousness for our company and our community through the universal language of dance.


Our approach is built on the ethics of collaboration and collision, authenticity, collegiality, discipline, care and love.

With bravery we enmesh all that we do, which permits and permeates:

reimagining, reconciliation, reflection, shapeshifting, discomfort, generosity, experimentation, boldness, unravelling, transformation, agency, contestation, presence, possibility, ambiguity, volatility, honesty, attention, chaos, vulnerability, fragility, dissonance, disruption, consciousness, collaboration, collision, reaction and meaning.

 Centred on an inclusive ethos of shared ownership, collective conscience, support, interconnection and empowerment, Dancenorth’s artistic philosophy provides a fertile framework which galvanises the company’s creative and administrative endeavours.

Deeply connected to place, to the vastness of the sky, the richness of the land and the saline breath of the ocean, we embrace our regional home base in Townsville as a source of inspiration and creative energy. We respond to isolation as enabling, enriching and facilitating a way of making that is responsive to these people in this place at this time.

Our aim is to nurture technical virtuosity, intellectual rigour and emotional presence in equal measure.


The Marketing and Communications Manager is responsible for developing and implementing effective marketing and communications strategies in order to promote Dancenorth’s vision locally, nationally and internationally. This includes the design and implementation of all aspects of the marketing department, including liaison and management of external contractors (media, design, print etc).

The Marketing and Communications Manager’s role is to involve, retain and build Dancenorth’s audiences, participants and supporters. This position is part of the management team at Dancenorth and will play an important role in helping to drive the Company’s direction.

The Marketing and Communications Manager role requires a proactive creative problem-solver with highly developed communications skills, who is a collaborative and positive contributor to the Dancenorth team culture.
