High standards set
HUNDREDS of dancers descended on South Grafton High School to begin the nine-day Grafton Dance Eisteddfod.
With people coming from as far north as Queensland, the school hall was filled to the brim with students, dance teachers, family and friends.
Grafton Dance Eisteddfod Society secretary Nicole Secomb said the first day began with dancers setting a high standard for the rest of the competition.
“We started with the junior groups, which went really well,” she said.
“We also started the solos on Saturday with the novice sections, which is for dancers just starting out.
“There was a very high standard of dancing and adjudicators made comment about how well they’ve all danced.”
The eisteddfod continues all this week, and people are welcome to come and join the audience for the solo competition. The championships conclude on Sunday.
