Artist

Stompin began in Launceston in 1992 with the idea that when young people collaborate with professional artists they can create inspiring, bold and relevant new dance works. Stompin involves young people in every aspect of our creative process, from conception to realisation. Stompin shifts dance out of traditional performance venues and into atypical landscapes, introducing contemporary dance to a range of people previously unexposed to it.

Stompin is unique because we work with young people in regional Tasmania, and this contributes significantly to Tasmanian, and therefore Australian, youth culture.  We mentor the next generation of resourceful, flexible artists who are able to create and perform contemporary dance work in many different contexts. Stompin employs professional collaborators, often Stompin alumni, who work on our shows and mentor young people to develop their skills for life through their connection with dance.
