Big jump in junior dance sections at 2019 Cowra Eisteddfod

Dance takes centre stage at the 2019 Cowra Eisteddfod from 9am on Friday, May 24 at the Cowra Civic Centre.

Dancing entries have increased substantially throughout all solo sections this year, especially the 10yrs and under age group which means the dancing sections will now commence on Friday May 24.

However there was a drop in the Dance Group entries which will be held over the weekend of 26th - 27th May.

The Bruce and Margaret Weir Trust Local Performing Arts Scholarship valued at $3000, has attracted twelve entries covering three disciplines.

The section is only open to resident of Cowra Shire.

A great result for this new section.

The entrants are Destiny Pepper, Keira Buckley, Ashleigh Saunders, Amelia Clements, Nicola Carter, Maddy Niven, Lillian Smith, Louis Carson, Louis Johnson, Mollie Thompson, Zoe Budge, and Josephine Reynolds.

The scholarship is the final event of the eisteddfod and follows the 12 years and over Fitzroy Street Physiotherapy Ballet Open Class scholarship and the 12 years and over Dance Solo Scholarship at the 6pm on Sunday, June 2.

Tickets to all sessions are available at the door.
