Sue Healey’s ‘Fine Line’: HSC Dance Appreciation Resource by Shelly Kelly – An excerpt from the May/Jun 2015 issue

For the first time in our history, a local female artist has been placed on the list of prescribed texts for the NSW HSC Dance Course. For those of you studying Dance at school, you will no doubt come across Sue Healey and her work Fine Line at some point. Originally from New Zealand, Sue Healey has been instrumental in the development of Australian contemporary dance and dance film since the 1980’s. Sue says, “I think Australian dance is highly placed on the world stage and worthy of being studied by the next generation of dancers. Australian work needs to be on the curriculum every year! It is critical for the development of the artform and audiences.”
