THE RIGHT FOOT


DirtyFeet is passionate about finding ways for professional artists to give back to the community.


The Right Foot offers FREE contemporary dance workshops for young people with and without disability, providing a creative activity for those who may otherwise not have access to dance.

We believe in the positive impact dance has on people's lives- it is a creative way to improve health and fitness, encourage self-expression and build confidence. The workshops are also an important professional pathway for aspiring young artists to gain experience to further their performance career.

“We have disabilities, but it doesn't matter: we can all move and be together and no one cares about the differences.” - 2015 participant Brianna Lowe.



In 2018, The Right Foot workshops were led by professional artist Brianna Kell and Adam Bowes in collaboration with a team of professional DirtyFeet artists who identify with and without a disability. The workshops were held on Saturdays throughout August and September, and delivered in partnership with Riverside Theatres.


DirtyFeet would like to acknowledge the contribution made by Sarah-Vyne Vassallo (Artistic Director, Murmuration) and past The Right Foot staff in assisting DirtyFeet establish such a successful program.

For more information regarding The Right Foot visit our Facebook Page or contact Program Manager Melinda Tyquin.

DirtyFeet delivers The Right Foot with the support of The Funding Network, The Hecand Private Ancillary Fund, Riverside Theatres and the NSW Government through Create NSW.

DirtyFeet would like to thank Jason Lam and Kaboom Studios for their photographic support during the 2015 project.

The Right Foot

"The heart of The Right Foot is so open and generous, as all of DirtyFeet programs are,” she says. “But I really love how each year there are new and familiar faces and an openness to communication, expression and connections. It connects people in a context where disability doesn’t matter. Everyone is experiencing dance and creativity together. There is time and patience for each person regardless of training and ability to connect with each other and their own freedoms of creativity.” Brianna Kell"

“I think organisations like DirtyFeet are a great example of including people with disability in the arts. They bring people together to have fun, learn new skills, are included, and there is a range of diversity.”
