Design: New Best Friend, 2021

Dance Fest provides a platform for young people to express their idea and opinions, to have their voices heard through dance. Our aim is to encourage and empower the young people of our region to find their creative, truthful and imaginative selves.


We are thrilled to announce that our iconic Youth Dance Festival will be going ahead online!

Participating schools will be welcomed individually to The Playhouse, Canberra Theatre Centre to have their works filmed.

These filmed performances will then be presented along with dance films in a Premiere Online Event on Friday 19th & 20th November. A download will be made available at a later date.

Ausdance ACT Director Dr Cathy Adamek said "We have been impressed by the way the participating schools and students have remained dedicated to Youth Dance Festival and continued to work and rehearse wherever possible over lockdown. Our 2021 theme ‘Digital Dystopia Utopia’ fast became our reality and whilst you cannot replace the live performance experience, our digital strategy allowed us to pivot and weave around the restrictions with a good outcome. I'd like to thank the ACT Education Directorate for their support in helping this event to go ahead."

Tickets to Youth Dance Festival online will be available here shortly.
