Asia-Pacific Channels – June 2020

Dear Friends,

I am happy to deliver you the June 2020 edition of Asia-Pacific Channels, the biannual magazine of World Dance Alliance Asia-Pacific. Thanks to all who contributed reports and images!

As usual, this edition contains reports from our executive committee and WDA secretary general, our network chairs and our country chapters, as well as updates on upcoming events.

It is fascinating to see the diverse ways in which dance communities all around the region have rallied to respond to the changes brought by the Covid-19 epidemic.

Check out:

  • A special message of hope from World Dance Alliance on International Dance Day.
  • Introducing themselves: Sarah Knox as chair of the Education & Training network, and Sohini Chakraborty as chair of the Support & Development network. 

… as well as beautiful and inspiring images of dance from across the Asia-Pacific. 

I hope you enjoy this edition, and please pass it on to your local dance community and networks. 

PDF versions of this and recent editions can be downloaded from our website:

And the archive back to 1996 is available from the Ausdance website:

Best wishes,

Bilqis Hijjas
