Spotlight on solo dancers
THE show goes on at the Ipswich Junior Eisteddfod this week as the solo dancing section has become the lead act.
The dancers performed a variety of disciplines including jazz, ballet, tap, and waltz for the panel of judges.
Performance Plus Dance Centre principal Janine Tirant said it was pleasing to see her students improve with each performance.
She said the standard across the board at the George Hogg Auditorium in the Ipswich Civic Centre had been high.
"When they improve from their last time and they listen to what you say, it's very rewarding when you watch them on stage," she said.
"Some of them do have some nerves, but a lot of the girls have a few eisteddfods before this one."
Ms Tirant said the girls liked the dressing up as much as the dancing.
"They like the costumes and the make-up and the girls rather enjoy catching up with friends they wouldn't necessarily get to see that much and getting out and having a good time," she said.
