Youth Dance Festival

Textured divide




18 + 19 October, 2023


Canberra Theatre Centre

Ausdance ACT’s student-led Youth Dance Festival is taking to the stage once again to empower young people in the arts! An exciting fusion of live performances and student made dance films from schools right across the Canberra region for two nights at the Canberra Theatre Centre. 
This year’s theme ‘Bread & Circuses’ is inspired by the Roman Empire’s strategy to distract its people with food and entertainment. Is dance pure entertainment or a catalyst for change? Can it be both?
For many it’s a chance to step onto the theatre stage for the first time, shaping potential artistic careers and creating cherished memories. We encourage you to support the hard work and dedication of Canberra region students and witness their co-creative ability.
