Gatton company shows the way in dance festival
ENERGY and excitement ruled the stage as Ipswich Dance Eisteddfod wrapped up yesterday.
Crowds packed the George Hogg Auditorium at Ipswich Civic Centre to see the dance festival action in full swing.
The national costumed category lifted the roof with Gatton's Dance Force winning first place for their tarantella southern Italian performance accompanied by tambourines.
They were followed closely in second place by Five Star Dance Academy's Moldavian Gypsy rendition and Performance Plus Dance Centre who won third.
The Dance Festival categories were hotly contested and featured performances from a multitude of genres, including classical, musical theatre, tap, street, jazz, hip hop and cabaret.
The Ipswich Junior Eisteddfod Society's Solos Eisteddfod will start on June 18 and run through until June 29.
