Dance Informa is proud to be Victorian Dance Festival’s media partner.

Today, Kate Meade (Director and Founder of Victorian Dance Festival) met with Catherine Peila (Producer, International programs – The Joffrey Ballet School) and Davis Robertson (Artistic Director, The Joffrey Ballet Concert Group and Summer Ballet Intensives) in New York to sign the official partnership.

Tickets are on sale for the festival at www.victoriandancefestival.com. Many of Australia’s best choreographers, including Yvette Lee, Marko Panzic, Paul Malek, Robert McLean, Stephen Tannos, Kelly Aykers and Lucy Doherty will also be teaching.
