MyDance Alliance is a registered non-profit membership association run by a 10-person volunteer committee. Their mission is to support and promote dance in Malaysia. Since 2001, they’ve brought the local dance community together to run festivals, capacity-building projects, performance platforms, workshops, and many more. They represent the Malaysian dance community to the global network, through their participation in World Dance Alliance Asia-Pacific. Previous projects include MyDance Festivals 2011 and 2013, Tepak Tari, regular informal performance platform Dancebox (partnering with The Actors Studios since 2001), mentoring project Dance Escalator, regional improvisational project Asia Pacific Impro!, the site-specific events Dancing in Place at both Rimbun Dahan and Damansara Performing Arts Centre, and the online contemporary dance magazine ‘Langkah’. They also host internships to train dance students in real-world skills and provide micro-grants to support local dance projects. We’re excited to have them on board for Urbanscapes 2018 to present the very first Kuala Lumpur city edition of Dancing in Place.
