Australian dance duo Lucy Doherty and Rob McLean are the founders One Dance Collective, an independent arts organisation facilitating empowerment and connection through the art of dance and movement. One Dance Collective aims to provide inspiration and information to support the evolution of a new generation of dance artists within Australia and overseas.
“We are passionate about sharing stories through movement, creating new spaces for them to be heard and building more inclusive and accessible platforms for dance to be shared and experienced within Australia and beyond,” Doherty says.
One Dance Collective is running a weekly online community class through One Dance Collective every Friday from 11am-1pm. The class consists of a movement meditation with Doherty, some reflection and and conversation, and a grooves class with McLean. Classes are free or by donation for those who can contribute, and they are open to all levels of dancers. Doherty says that One Dance Collective will also be starting up a weekly schedule of classes throughout April.
Doherty and McLean are esteemed performers and choreographers with a string of impressive performance and choreographic credits to their name individually, as well as together, including The Dream Dance Company, Justin Beiber, Jason Derulo, Ruel, Courtney Act, Rita Ora, George Maple, Dance Boss, Eurovision, The X Factor, Dance Academy, So You Think You Can Dance Australia and more.
