YouDance is an annual youth dance festival in Auckland celebrating youth choreography and performance in a non-competitive, collegial atmosphere. We want young people to value the diversity of dance, and extend and share their skills in a supportive environment.

We also want to showcase the talent and ability of youth dance to a wider public audience. Some dances performed in YouDance may be selected to be part of Tempo dance festival later in the year.

We welcome students who are willing to explore new ideas, who are ready to take choreographic risks as well as those who are striving for excellence in dance in secondary schools and youth dance companies.

High quality choreography and performance by young people is a continued focus for the 2019 selection panel.
