The Senior Flipside Project is a contemporary dance & choreographic program that performs up to 5 times annually: locally, nationally & internationally.

The Senior Flipside ensemble collaborates with emerging & established Australian choreographers to create new work.

The Senior Ensemble is nationally recognised and is invited to perform across Australia.  The Senior Flipsiders also participate in national Festivals that bring together Youth Dance Companies from across the Globe.

The Flipside Project provides opportunities for young people and emerging artists to collaborate with some of Australia’s most esteemed professional contemporary and independent dance theatre choreographers; inspiring and mentoring them through a long term collaborative, creative process.

The Flipside Project provides the opportunity to create and perform in full length contemporary dance works that simulate the professional dance industry, collaborating with professional composers, visual designers and production teams.

The Flipside Project, is not a private dance school, but a youth dance company that offers unique dance experiences for young people through performance and creative projects supported by Ausdance NSW, artsNSW, the NSW Department of Education and Communities, the City of Newcastle & the University of Newcastle

Flipside’s Intensives Programs are devised to simulate the working processes of a professional contemporary dance company, through daily morning contemporary technique class, creative task development, choreography and rehearsals, working together to create new full length contemporary work.

The Flipside Project strengthens the presence of contemporary youth dance in a non-traditional dance school setting, in Newcastle, the Central Coast and Greater Hunter, creating a non-competitive, inclusive hub for young and emerging dancers: extending their networks and profile both in the professional arts
