THE Ipswich Junior Eisteddfod saw a combination of thrilling performances and breath-taking routines as the 11-year-olds took over the stage yesterday.

Jazz and ballet categories were hotly contested during the day before song and dance participants wowed the crowds last night.

Standout performances were given in the slow modern, neo-classical jazz item.

First place was given to Hannah Millott, second to Mikaela Logan and third to April Beak.

Chelsea Parker, Jordan Hayes and Georgia Baxter received very high commendations, while Ciara Williams was highly commended.

The 11 years jazz contemporary solo was won by Jorja Warburton, followed by Hannah Soda and a tie between Georgia Sams and Chiara Polette in third place. Tayla Hurly and Ebony Hart were highly commended for their efforts.

The dance solos continue today at the Ipswich Civic Centre's George Hogg Auditorium, including acrobatic/novelty, national character, musical theatre, tap and ballet variations.
