Dancers, teachers all 'up to speed'

DANCERS in the Lower Clarence Dance Eisteddfod have been described as of a 'very high standard' with equal compliments being paid to their teachers.

Adjudicator Lyndi Walley said the eisteddfod had a very strong classical ballet discipline equal to and in some cases better than what she had adjudicated in the cities.

“I am very impressed with the standard of teaching, the dancers are well up to speed with what is happening in the world of dance and it is changing all the time.” Ms Walley said.

With a string of respected dance qualifications with the British Ballet Organisation in all disciplines of tap, jazz, ballet and character, Ms Walley's critical assessments of the dancers has been met with enthusiasm.

“I am here to encourage the dancers and I feel that the comments I make to them can help them strive to become better performers.”

The eisteddfod will conclude tomorrow afternoon with the final presentation commencing at 6.30pm at the Maclean Civic Hall.
