In 2007 the West Australian Aboriginal Dance Company was founded by Louise Howden-Smith OAM, to bring Aboriginal and non-Indigenous dancers/choreographers and arts professionals together to create an Aboriginal contemporary dance company based in Western Australia. In 2011 the organisation was renamed the Ochre Contemporary Dance Company, and began to perform on a project basis with commissioned works premiering at various government and corporate openings and gala functions which increased momentum and visibility. In May 2012 the company was officially launched by the Minister for the Arts, the Hon. John Day at a gala function in the Hackett Hall of the WA Museum. The company's inaugural production Diaphanous: seeing through and beyond was staged in November that year at the State Theatre Centre of WA.
