YOUTH DANCE FESTIVAL
Stage Opportunities and Scholarships Nurture Young Dancers
Presented and coordinated by Ballet Frontier of Texas, The Youth Dance Festival offers performers from the greater North Texas community the chance to showcase a variety of pieces, including classical ballet, as well as contemporary and modern repertoires.
Last year's program featured performances from an alliance of dance companies including Dallas Black Dance Theatre, Texas Ballet Theater Schools, Texas Ballet Theater II and Wichita Falls Ballet Theater. Additional participating dance programs includes Arlington Heights High School, Fort Worth Country Day and Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts.
In keeping with its mission to foster youth dancers, Ballet Frontier presents several Roy Tobias Scholarships during the event. Ballet Frontier funds these scholarships in honor of renowned dancer and choreographer, Roy Tobias, who died in 2006.
