Biography/History

The Sydney Dance Company is one of Australia's major contemporary dance companies. Sydney Dance Company began life as the Dance Company (NSW). Originally a dance-in-education group, it was founded in 1965 by Suzanne Musitz (Davidson) under the name Ballet in a Nutshell and later Athletes and Dancers. By the 1970s it had become a full-time performing group with federal and state government support and was led by Musitz until 1974. In 1975 and 1976 the company was directed by Dutch-born choreographer and dancer Jaap Flier. Graeme Murphy was appointed artistic director of the company at the end of 1976 and has directed it ever since. The name change to Sydney Dance Company took place in 1979. Graeme Murphy created many of the works performed by the Sydney Dance Company.
