Acrobatic dance at Eisteddfod this week

SOME amazing talent has graced the stage at the 70th annual Ipswich Junior Eisteddfod over the past two months.

Organisers are now encouraging people to get in quick and be part of the audience before the event wraps up on Saturday.

Ipswich Junior Eisteddfod dance convener Lynlee McCormac said it was a shame to see days where seats were empty when such top talent was on show.

"So far entrants have been of a very high standard," she said.

"We want people to come and support the performers, especially during the school holidays."

Mrs McCormac said eisteddfod performers often became professional dancers.

"Ipswich Eisteddfod stands up to others. It'll rival Brisbane this year," she said.

"People can come to any performance. This week we will have a lot of different styles like cabaret, novelty, acrobatic, tap and jazz. There's something for everyone."

Sessions will be held all week at the Ipswich Civic Centre, finishing on Saturday.

Tickets cost $7 per session for adults, $3 for children. Full day entry costs $15 for adults and $7 for children. Tickets at the door.
