​​YDF Youth Dance Festival

about Us

Hello and welcome my name is Debbie Melendez I am the founder and Director of the Youth Dance Festival. A diverse dance festival that caters to children, teens and young adults. Our dance festival welcomes dance groups from all around the world and the tri-state area. 


This event was created in memory of my brother the late David Melendez. In his honor and inspiration we continue his dream to give the children in our community a place to share their talent. A non-competitive, artistic performance opportunity to share & highlight the youth, make new friends, and create a safe space within our community.

Our mission is to promote, encourage, & facilitate the art of dancing & other performing arts at our event. Singing, Dancing, and Step are some of the styles you can expect to see at YDF.  


Join us Friday July 12-14,2024 for 3 Nights of showcase performances followed by social dancing each night. There will also be dance workshops held at our host hotel in Sheraton Lake Buena Vista Resort 12205 Apopka Vineland Rd, Orlando FL 32836 Book your room today!
