Ulysses Dancers will be taking part in the 2018 Aberdeen International Youth Festival in Scotland.
Jane Pirani took the first group of Australian representatives to the Aberdeen International Youth Festival in 1994. Now, some 24 years later, Jane will again lead a group of contemporary dancers representing Australia at the festival.
Planning is now underway for Ulysses Dancers to travel from Townsville to Aberdeen in 2018 and perform as part of the international festival.
Aberdeen International Youth Festival (AIYF) is a multi- arts event which takes place annually in Aberdeen and the North East region of Scotland. Running since 1973, the festival began as an orchestral event, and has diversified in recent years to become a performing arts festival which includes a wide range of art-forms including dance, theatre, opera and contemporary, jazz, classical and traditional music. Young people up to age 25 travel from around the world to perform at the festival.
Keep an eye on the Aberdeen International Youth Festival website and details for the 2018 festival.
