The Riverina Dance Festival celebrates the achievements and dance education programs of public schools across the Riverina.  The festival features students from Kindergarten to Year 12 providing an opportunity for students of all ages, dance backgrounds and abilities to showcase their creativity and performance skills in a professional venue.
