Dance Fest provides a platform for young people to express their ideas and opinions, and have their voices heard through dance. The festival aims to provide positive life messages, to celebrate the young artists and their ideas through an inclusive and accessible dance and theatre environment; to remove the boundaries of judgment and empower young people to enjoy self expression through dance and movement. The festival provides opportunities for a diverse group of people to create and perform in a non-competitive, professional theatre environment. Whether it be onstage, backstage or in the rehearsal room, Dance Fest provides a platform for young people to come together and to learn.

Given the significance this festival plays in our community Images Instantly sought a partnership.

Jamie Winbank, Creative Director of the festival elaborated on the theme. "Every year, the creative team of Dance Fest provides the participants with a theme for the festival, a catalyst to begin their creative process. This year's theme 'Generation NEXT' explores ideas from the next generation of dancers and young artists coming through our Dance Fest stage doors, essentially how the young people of Canberra can have the capacity to be beacons of change through their own opinions, their own thoughts, ideas, and values expressed through dance".

Images Instantly is excited to bring next generation technology to a likewise themed festival. "What we offer in our image delivery speeds is in many ways revolutionary and at this point in time is certainly next generation tech". Terry Cunningham, Director of Images Instantly explained this in more detail. "At the moment when you have your photo taken at an event it won't be sent to you for days, weeks or even months later. With this technology we are able to sent branded photos to your phone within 5 seconds after your professional image was taken. Your personal photo to your mobile device - all in an instant".

Jamie Winbank expanded on why Images Instantly's involvment is so exciting. "The collaboration of Youth Dance Fest and Images Instantly speaks volumes to me. Every year we challenge ourselves to find new ways to spread the message of Youth Dance Festival and the incredible outcomes of choreography that all the participants create. This year particularly, with the Generation Next, I am excited about taking new steps forward in advancing our technological capabilities with the festival".
