Youth Dance Program

Young dancers (aged 14-25) will immerse in five days of moving, creating, sharing and learning with their Australian and international counterparts.

Key sessions at this year’s Festival:

DANCE
75-minute high energy dance explosions in a variety of styles

DEVELOP
90-minute sessions that focus on deepening your understanding of specific skills related to dancing and dance-making

MAKE
90-min to 2 hour sessions to collaborate and create with other young dancers from around Australia, and around the world. Engage your physical and creative energy to make your own dance ideas, together.

YOUTH DANCE FORUM
Youth-led and youth-focused forum. We are letting the next generation of leaders drive this conversation.
