General questions

Important information regarding COVID-19 and the Koorliny Arts Centre Kwinana

Koorliny Arts Centre will be implementing all government orders relating to COVID-19. Please note that once your booking is complete, refunds for tickets will not be provided unless otherwise required by law. A refund is not applicable as a result of a change in your personal circumstances (such as getting Covid-19) or a change of mind.

As of April 29, 2022, patrons are no longer required to wear a mask indoors or show proof of vaccination as a condition of entry.

The safety of our staff, artists, patrons and the general public is always our greatest priority. If you are feeling unwell or displaying flu-like symptoms, please DO NOT attend the Centre. Call our box office on (08) 9467 7118 if you need assistance.

Koorliny follows COVID-Safe guidelines and has taken steps to brief our staff, to increase venue cleaning frequency, and make hand sanitiser accessible to all staff and guests of the Centre.

If you are coming to the Centre, please follow these healthy hygiene habits:

  • Wash your hands regularly for at least 20 seconds, using soap and water, or an alcohol-based gel (singing a song chorus makes the time go faster). 
  • Cover your mouth/nose with a tissue or flexed elbow if you need to cough or sneeze, and wash your hands again afterwards.


Koorliny Arts Centre Kwinana is closely monitoring COVID-19 advice from the Australian Government Department of Health, and we will keep patrons, artists, and the community updated should our situation change.

Kwinana Dance Festival

We aim to have final programs and tickets on sale by September 5, 2022.

You can book online, in person or over the phone.

Tickets are sold by SESSION, not ITEM, number.

Make sure you have checked the FINAL, not DRAFT, program before you book.

Have the following information ready before you book, in this order:

  • Session number
  • Total number of tickets
  • Ticket type (Standard, Child or Performer)
  • Cash/credit card details ready for payment (no holds)

If they are going into the theatre to watch, yes. If they are not going in the theatre to watch, no.

You can collect tickets from the Box Office. Please have your confirmation/order number ready for the Box Office staff so they can find your tickets quickly and not hold up others. 

It’s always best to buy your tickets ahead of time, rather than taking a chance that there will be tickets left.

Please encourage family members who are coming along to watch to purchase tickets in advance, whether online or by calling the Box Office on 9467 7118.

No, unfortunately, we are unable to offer a day pass option.

Sessions with troupes tend to sell out early, so we recommend buying tickets well in advance.

If you are not able to buy a ticket for a session that is sold out please collect a wait list ticket from the Box Office which can then be swapped for returned tickets at the theatre door if they are available.

If a session sells out, we would very much appreciate you handing in your ticket to the ushers if you leave the theatre before the end of the session.

ENTRY AND EXIT TO THE THEATRE WILL ONLY BE ALLOWED AT SPECIFIC TIMES.

As a general guide, the doors will NOT open during items to minimise disruption to the dancers. Please ensure you are in the theatre before your child’s item starts so you don’t miss their dance.

Please respect the ushers and comply with their instructions. They are acting under the instruction of Centre Management.  Any problems should be reported to Management at the Arts Centre Office.

Please do not leave the theatre until the item you are watching has been adjudicated. This minimises disruption to the dancers and audience.

NO CAMERAS OF ANY KIND are allowed in the theatre at any time.  Penalties apply, and any photos or videos recorded will be erased. As a performing arts venue we are required to enforce statutory copyright regulations.

A licensed photographer/videographer will be at the event.

Times will be advised closer to the event.

No. These are public areas.

Hair and make-up is to be finalised in dressing rooms. You may wish to bring a portable mirror.

No. Removing lipstick marks from the walls is an expensive and time-consuming process. We use some heavy duty chemicals to get them off, so for your safety we advise children not to kiss them. We may also charge schools a cleaning fee if this occurs.
