In 1968, she accepted an invitation from the Flinders University in Adelaide to become its teacher at the department of drama, where she taught expressive movement and pantomime. In 1975, she founded the Australian Mime Theatre. Since 1978 when her involvement at the university ended, she has given private lessons.

Zora Šemberová is one of the founders of the Czech Chamber of Commerce in Adelaide. She takes an active part in the Chamber's meetings and, by her enthusiasm, she contributes to the development of Czech-Australian business relations. For the last 36 years, her extraordinarily active and selfless work for the Czech community in South Australia has been absolutely fundamental. Through the Czechoslovak Club in Adelaide, she plays a major role in the education of the young generation of Czech-Australian artists and assists them in preparing their dance and singing performances.
