"DanceWize NSW is a long-awaited service and health management aspect to the entertainment and festival field in NSW. The government backed program with training and health service support is a no brainer to me when producing a festival. Their ability to tailor their service around the areas of harm reduction to our events has given our events a level of support that gives me comfort and a sense of security. Involvement of a subject matter expert such the DanceWize NSW team is a necessity to the festival marketplace." - Justin Nyker, Mothership Events

"HUGE thank you to yourself and the entire DanceWize NSW team. Your ongoing support and commitment to Psyfari Music Festival and Psyfari community events is greatly appreciated. Your attendance within the multi-agency meetings and the immediate response to any communications onsite was not only a presentation of your professionally run operation, but also communicated and implemented the harm reduction strategy clearly to the external governing bodies. I have received positive feedback from the Australian Federal Police and ACT Ambulance regarding the event and our response and protocol to harm minimisation and any incidents onsite. I feel we are very lucky to have such a dedicated organisation like DanceWize NSW within our community, scene and industry." - Chantelle Cameron, Psyfari Music Festival

“DanceWize NSW are an invaluable resource that work collaboratively with emergency service organisations and festival management to give real time intelligence on safety issues. Their care space and roving capabilities give me great comfort when managing the emergency response to affected individuals at festivals. They are an excellent adjunct to any medical provider that allows decanting from the medical service to DanceWize NSW for ongoing professional and safe care. I highly recommend them.” - Matt Wood, Ranwood Solutions
