Amy Wiseman engages with dance as an artist, teacher, writer and producer. A graduate of WAAPA’s LINK Dance Company in 2008, Amy is a founding member of Perth-based collective Unkempt Dance, and has choreographed, produced and performed award-winning works with Unkempt both locally and nationally. This includes performances in the Adelaide Fringe, Canberra Short+Sweet, the 2014 National Architecture Conference in Perth and various STRUT Dance seasons. The collective has also been commissioned to make and present work for Co3 Contemporary Dance’s WA Dance Makers program (2018) and for a regional touring primary school show Paper Scissors Rocket (2016) as well as for LINK Dance Company (2015). Unkempt also initiated the In Situ platform (now Situ8) – a site-specific development and performance opportunity for independent choreographers through STRUT Dance, with the premiere season held in an edgy café/barber shop in the Perth CBD.

Amy was Projects Manager for Ausdance WA from 2014-2018, has independently produced the annual Performing Arts Perspectives event at Perth Concert Hall since 2016, and was Project Manager for Co3’s Project NEXT in 2019. Amy also sat as an artist member of the STRUT Board from 2013-2019.

Amy has been an independent teacher of dance in Perth’s metropolitan secondary and dance schools for over a decade. She holds the Ausdance Skill Set for Teaching Dance (2014), a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (2019) and regularly teaches, coaches and examines for ATAR dance. Amy also enjoys writing and reviewing dance and has a lectured in Dance History and Analysis for Dance at WAAPA and written for Ausdance and Seesaw magazine. Since becoming a mother in 2019, Amy enjoys time in the playgrounds of Perth and popping her work hat back on sporadically for STRUT Dance as an administer.
