Contemporary dancers hit stage

IT WAS a big day at the Ipswich Junior Eisteddfod with young dancers expressing their emotions on stage in the group contemporary dance section.

Dancers as young as three impressed crowds yesterday with well-rehearsed routines.

Dance convener Lynlee McCormac said the unique style of dance resulted in a diverse range of performances.

"We had some outstanding numbers," she said.

"Contemporary dance aims to tell a story and is based on ballet technique.

"It's a style pretty close to my heart, I love it."

Ms McCormac said she hoped for large crowds to come along and support the eisteddfod this long weekend.

"It's great entertainment," she said.

"We'll have a range of dances including lyrical, jazz, novelty, musical theatre, hip hop and classical."

Group dance will continue today from 8am to 10pm.

Tickets cost $7 per person and can be purchased at the door.
