Kingaroy Dance Academy performers excel at eisteddfod

KINGAROY Dance Academy dancers took to the stage to compete at this year's Kingaroy Eisteddfod.

The budding stars competed against dancers from as far north as Bundaberg, and as far away as New South Wales in the south.

The youngest dancer was just four years old and she blew away the judges with her performance.

Four dancers were awarded encouragement trophies for their performances:

  • Hugh Dunstan-Wyvill won the Senior Jazz Encouragement award.
  • Molly Oram won the Junior Jazz encouragement award.
  • Billie-Kate Stead won the Junior Tap encouragement award.
  • Bayli Cridge won the Junior Contemporary encourage award.

Kingaroy Dance Academy principal Kirsten Canniford said her academy had a busy year ahead.

"Our students will be participating in the Australian Teachers of Dancing exams and the ATOD Sunshine Coast competition,” she said.

"We will be holding our winter recital in June and we have many other exciting things installed for our dancers throughout the rest of the year, including our second trip to perform in the USA, Disneyland and Hawaii in December.” 

The Kingaroy Dance Academy team walked away from the eisteddfod with 17 first place titles in total.
