Dancers turn up the heat on stage
THE fluorescent lycra and leg warmers were out in force yesterday as competition got going in the solo dance sections of the 67th Ipswich Annual Junior Eisteddfod.
Ipswich performer Marijem Reeves added a sunny South American injection to the cold surrounds of the George Hogg Auditorium in the six years Up Tempo Jazz section, with her performance to the tune of Welcome to Rio.
She impressed the crowd with a mix of cartwheels and maracas.
Fellow Ipswich performer Miranda Zelinski battled on through an audio malfunction while dancing to Aqua's Cartoon Heroes, to receive a loud round of applause. The entire event was filmed so that performers and their mums and dads could enjoy it all on DVD afterwards.
Eisteddfod dancing action continues at the Civic Centre today.
