Ystradgynlais Schools Dance Festival

Sport Powys are pleased to present the Ystradgynlais Schools Dance Festival.

All the local Primary and Secondary Schools have entered pupils into the show. Ysgol Maesydderwen for many years have entered into competitions and festivals around Powys and Wales. Dance is of high demand within the schools and we have decided to host our own show.

In the recent School Sport Survey from Sports Wales 22% of female pupils from Ysgol Maesydderwen said they wished to do more dance within school time. This has resulted in more dance sessions being added on to the 5×60 timetable during lunch times and after school.

The Dance Festival will be supported by several partners such as Sport Powys, Freedom Leisure and all of the local schools. This shows a great community spirit and partnerships involved within the Ystradgynlais Community.
