Hear from those who taken part before...
“We have been so very fortunate to perform on stage at The Victorian Dance Festival for three previous years and each time we have noticed a positive change in our dancers following their experience at VDF. We see noticeable change in their self esteem, confidence, stage presence, commitment, determination and overall attitude for dance which is an amazing indicator of the benefit and overall impact this experience has on our dancers. It truly is their highlight of the year.” Miss M
“We have performed in the show in the past and it was such a wonderful experience for our students. They loved the atmosphere that VDF provides. Our students love coming together with studios across Vic and always walk away so inspired by watching and dancing with everyone at VDF” Miss L

“VDF IGNITE has become a traditional event for our dancers and we wouldn’t miss another chance to perform. We love this event and how it brings a community of schools and companies together and we always feel so proud and honoured to share that space and stage with others.” Miss S
“We have had the opportunity to perform in the past and we have found it a fantastic way to engage our dance passionate students. It enables us to create a new work that brings together students from across year levels and even across campuses. It's a fantastic bonding opportunity for everyone involved and I just love the way it gets students so hyped on dance!” Miss R
