The Alice Project is a major dance event based on the themes and characters of Alice in Wonderland. Delivered during 2013 and 2014, the program is designed to get regional Victorians moving. 
 
Inclusive, active, exciting, colourful, quirky and fun, The Alice Project invites young and old, active and inactive people to get moving in a fun, free and non-judgmental way. As an ‘arts on tour’ program and community celebration, its goal is to activate and involve communities, to inspire curiosity and create a new found love of movement
 
The Alice Project is funded by VicHealth’s MOTION program to get Victorians moving through art. It involves partnerships between Ausdance Victoria, VicHealth, local councils, libraries and local community groups across three municipalities: Glenelg Shire (2013), Latrobe City and East Gippsland Shire (2014)

THE FOUR ALICE CHAPTERS!

The Alice Project has four main chapters in the Alice adventure:

DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE
“If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense” said Alice.
 

Follow the white rabbit and discover the world of Alice – a world full of surprises!
 
Ausdance Victoria will run lots of free, dance story time sessions for two to five-year-olds and their carers/parents in local libraries with games and activities based on Alice and her crazy adventures.

Children will grow to monstrous proportions and shrink to the size of a pea, leap across the roof of toadstools and play croquet.
 

FIND OUT DATES & BOOKING INFO FOR DOWN THE RABBIT HOLE or email us at ddo.vic@ausdance.org.au to make a booking for your local area.

A HATTERS TEA PARTY!
“There is a place. Like no place on Earth. A land full of wonder, mystery, and danger! Some say to survive it: You need to be as mad as a hatter!”

Pop on your hat, don your dancing shoes and bring your friends to Ausdance Victoria’s FREE hatters tea parties. We will run multiple free hatter tea parties in each municipality for all-ages and abilities.

Ausdance Victoria Hatters will lead this extraordinary un-birthday event, with outrageously large teapots, ridiculous hats and party games for kids of all ages.

FOLLOW THE FOOTSTEPS
“’It doesn't matter which way you go,’ said the Cat.
‘So long as I get somewhere,’ Alice added as an explanation. 
 
‘Oh, you're sure to do that,’ said the Cat, ‘if you only walk long enough’ ”
 
In the spirit of not minding where our footsteps lead us, Ausdance Victoria and volunteers will create an installation of footsteps.
 
Appearing and disappearing on pavements, they will create a journey of 2,500 steps ranging from normal walking patterns, long strides, wide legged walks, straight lines, circles and zig zags, waltz, cha cha and samba.

You can participate at your own leisure and develop confidence in basic movement in your own time.

THE LOBSTER QUADRILLE
“Will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, will you, won’t you, join the dance?” 
 
Connecting with local community festivals, participants will join a local brass band playing a cool bossa nova and dive into an flask mob style infectious dance from Alice in Wonderland.
