Sydney Dance Company has its origins in a company founded in 1969 by dancer Suzanne Musitz. In the early 1970s, the organisation came of age as The Dance Company (NSW) and began to receive annual government funding along with a notable growth in stature and public support. In 1975-1976 the Company was directed by Dutch choreographer Jaap Flier, before the appointment of Australian choreographer Graeme Murphy in November 1976. In 1979 Murphy and Vernon instituted the defining name change to Sydney Dance Company.

The Company was led from 1976 – 2007 by Artistic Director Graeme Murphy and Associate Director Janet Vernon. Following the death of newly appointed Director Tanya Liedtke in 2007, Sydney Dance Company spent time to find a new Artistic Director to lead the Company on a new journey of excellence.

Sydney Dance Company’s headquarters are located at The Wharf, Pier 4, in Sydney’s busy arts precinct at Walsh Bay where other arts companies, such as Bangarra Dance Theatre, Carnivale, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs and ATYP, are also located. Sydney Dance Company gratefully acknowledges the support of the Australia Council, the Federal Government’s arts funding and advisory body, through the Major Performing Arts Board; the New South Wales Government through Arts NSW; and the invaluable support received from its sponsors, company supporters and partners.
