The Susan Caulfield-Leclercq Dance collection was launched to commemorate Sue’s significant contribution to QUT Dance upon her retirement in 2014. Sue was an Associate Lecturer in Ballet and key QUT Dance Staff member from 1989 - 2014. She contributed significantly to the career development of hundreds of graduates through her encouraging, nurturing and supportive approach – which included being fondly known as ‘Mama Sue’ by the students.
The collection includes programs from the annual QUT Dance performance seasons (1989-until present), donated from Sue’s personal collection over her 25 years of service.
