Lo­cal dancers achieve great re­sults in Mackay

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

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.
