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. We are honored to host such a great event that reflects the art of dance.
