This year the festival will be held over two days at the Pavilion Theatre in Dún Laoghaire on Saturday 30th of June and Sunday 1st of July.
The IYDF is one of the most exiting youth dance events in Ireland. The Festival has been running for 11 years offering a platform for young dancers and choreographers, both nationally and internationally.

We are looking for fresh, edgy, creative, original and current pieces in all dance styles.
