In 2020, for the first time in 35 years, Youth Dance Festival was cancelled. In 2021 we are thrilled to announce that our iconic Youth Dance Festival will go ahead. With a theme of Digital Dystopia Utopia, Ausdance ACT presents a multimedia delivery of dance films and recorded stage performance. Providing students with the opportunity to engage in dance filmmaking and to meet the challenges of a brave new world where we are connected out of necessity through technology.

This is your chance to view the Online Premiere Event of performances filmed at The Playhouse, Canberra Theatre, and dance films created by students from across Canberra all exploring this year’s theme of ‘Digital Dystopia Utopia’.

Support our Canberra regional schools’ hard work and dedication by purchasing a ticket. View it anywhere around the world and from the comfort of your own home!

Dance Fest provides a platform for young people to express their ideas 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.
