Dancers get in the groove for stage

SAJEEWA Ranasinghe, Kassi Maclaren and Alycia Martin were balls of excitement before their first and only performance in the Kingaroy Eisteddfod at the weekend.

"We're nervous but can't wait to get up on stage," Kassi said.

"Seeing all the people looking at you makes you feel like you're doing something great."

Kassi said this was her 10th year dancing, but Sajeewa and Alycia both said dancing was new to them.

"I just groove around a bit at school," Alycia said.

The Kingaroy Eisteddfod closed the curtains on dance performances on Sunday night, and reopened them to speech and drama yesterday morning.

The eisteddfod will showcase vocal, keyboard and instrumental performances for the remainder of the week, and close with a gala concert on May 9 at 7pm.

Tickets will be available at the door.
