SmokeFree Youth Dance Festival
"Changes: 25 Years"
The theme is "Changes: 25 years", and yes -
SmokeFree Youth Dance Festival is 25 this year, so you have a wide-open theme
to play with for 2009. And what changes have we seen in dance and SmokeFree
Youth Dance Festival over the past 25 years?
Welcome to another update for 2009 SmokeFree Youth Dance Festival. We've just finished a great
two weeks of professional development for high school and college dance teachers.
Register for the free Choreographic Workshops for teachers and students on Wednesday 20
May 1-4pm, Thursday 28 May 1-4pm, and Friday 5 June 1-4pm. Book early, and for the early
days - too many schools leave it to the last minute to book for the last day, and we have
limited spaces and may not be able to fit you in!
We have some new schools participating this year, so if your school is one of them and you
have any queries please call us.
The Production Manual is now available to download from the Ausdance web site now. This
should answer most of your queries.
One of the Ausdance ACT Board, and an experienced High School dance teacher involved in
SmokeFree Youth Dance Festival, has offered to act as a mentor for teachers new to the
event. Please contact us and we can help!

We know that some school email systems are set to block images and teachers
can only receive text, so we now have a web link to a browser-based version of
this email - the email system will store this version for 30 days.
