YOUTH DANCE FESTIVAL

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Youth Dance Festival (affectionately known as Dance Fest) is a remarkable Canberra success story and has been proudly presented by Ausdance ACT since 1985. A long-term feature on the Canberra arts and education calendar, and celebrating 40 years in 2024, Dance Fest boasts a second generation of participants, a proud alumnus and a strong legacy.

 

There is something magical about the unique opportunity that Dance Fest provides - the vibrancy, fun and energy that can only be experienced at Dance Fest. Alongside the supported process of creating a concept, translating that concept into dance, and presenting the work on Canberra’s premiere stage is a lifetime memory for the 45,000+ students who have been involved since it first began.

 We are excited to confirm dates for YDF 2024 at Canberra Theatre Centre:

Thursday 7th November and Friday 8th November 2024

Our theme this year is: WHAT ARE YOUR DREAMS? School entries for 2024 are now open!
