Local dancers achieve great results in Mackay
WHITSUNDAY Dance Connection triumphed at the recent Mackay Dance Eisteddfod, bringing home a significant number of placings.
Dancers pranced and spun in a variety of categories in groups, as soloists and in duos and trios.
Dance teacher Paula Bradley said the dancers’ results speak for themselves.
“It displays extraordinary talent. I am super proud of each and every one of them. They have had tough competition at each eisteddfod,” she said.
Dancer Jacquelyn Watts took home the biggest trophy of all after receiving the ‘Overall Adjudicators Choice’ award for her performances at the Mackay Dance Eisteddfod.
Members from Whitsunday Dance Connection also travelled to Rockhampton and Gladstone this month to compete in additional dance festivals and eisteddfods.
Upon their return, the school has begun rehearsals for their annual end of year concert which will be held on November 28-30 at the Proserpine Entertainment Centre.
