Colourful competitors dance their way to the top

DANCING queens and kings have been showing off their best moves at the Ipswich Junior Dance Eisteddfod this week.

The solo dance sections kicked off on Monday and will run until next Saturday.

So far young dancers aged five to nine have been taking the stage and impressing crowds with skills far beyond their years in both song and dance.

A wide range of dance has also been represented in the eisteddfod so far with styles ranging from tap and jazz to classical and contemporary.

Locals are invited to join the audience at the eisteddfod which begins today at 8am at Ipswich Civic Centre. Entry costs $7.
