Dancers turn to shine on stage

BRIGHT colours, shiny outfits and upbeat music were the flavour of the day at the Ipswich Junior Eisteddfod yesterday.

The group dance section continued in the George Hogg Auditorium with tap, ballet, novelty and jazz dancers all taking the stage.

The eight years and under up-tempo jazz performances were among the most popular of the day, with 25 teams participating in two separate groups.

Children in cowboy costumes and even dancers with maracas wowed the audience and judges as the groups performed throughout the afternoon.

The dance section of the Ipswich Junior Eisteddfod will continue today and tomorrow in the George Hogg Auditorium at the Ipswich Civic Centre.

The eisteddfod group dance section will continue until Monday before the solo dancing section begins on Tuesday, June 19, running until Saturday, June 30 at the Civic Centre.
