As part of the ICDF conference in Sweden we are running an afternoon track specifically tailored to train, connect and encourage dancers aged 17-30.
It will be a 3 hour session covering both afternoon workshop slots and we will be doing a mixture of technique (from a variety of teachers focusing on a different style every day), leadership training, biblical devotional and building connections with each other.
You don't have to join all 3 sessions in the track but it would be lovely to see you if you can.
Are you below 30 years of age? Apply for a Youth Scholarship here.
It could cover your conference course fee.

Levi was educated at Royal Swedish Ballet School and started working with Royal Swedish Ballet after graduation. Abroad he has worked with Ballet Jörgen Canada and Opera Atelier. In Sweden he has also worked as a Musical Theatre artist in Billy Elliot.
At this year's ICDF Conference, he is also leading an afternoon workshop on ballet.
Hilde came into contact with ICDF when she studied dance at Wesley Institute for Ministry & the Arts in Sydney, and has since then been involved with dance in different settings inside and outside church, teaching and doing some choreography. Most of her training has been in ballet, Graham-technique, release-technique, and a mix of other contemporary techniques. She has also trained in a movement style called Gyrokinesis.
