An amazing dancing feat



IT was a hectic week of performances for Morgan Holt at the Grafton Eisteddfod, but the 13year-old has more to show for it than tired limbs and aching feet.

Morgan competed in tap, jazz, ballet, contemporary, demi-character, national character and modern dance over the course of the eisteddfod and was awarded the Senior Overall Excellence Scholarship for her performances.

Morgan said she was thrilled with the award.

"I was very excited when they announced my name," she said.

"I walked up on stage almost crying and then I saw Mum crying up the back."

At the eisteddfod she also won the 14-years intermediate jazz championship, and was third in both the intermediate ballet and tap championships. The South Grafton High School student has been with the Nicole Shipman Academy of Dance since she was four and is also part of the interstate junior program with the Australian Ballet Company.
