Choreography dazzles

THERE'S never a dull moment when it comes to the dance category of the 42nd Gladstone City Eisteddfod.

One minute audience members will find themselves watching a soulful, romantic routine and the next a dancer performing a high-tempo number in a fluoro costume.

There were many different genres performed yesterday, the second day of the category, including section 371, which allowed 11 and 12-year-olds to express their individuality in performing their own choreography.

The two-minute routines were all vastly different with performances either modern, jazz or free movement based.

Dance adjudicator Jason King congratulated the dancers on executing their choreography so well before awarding places.

"I'm quite impressed," he said.

Petria Shuttleworth took out first place, followed by Taylor Hayes in second and Ebony Walker in third.

Tiffany Lane-Krebs received a highly commended for her performance.

If you've missed out on watching the region's talented dancers so far, don't worry you can still head down to the GEC marquee at the marina to watch both today and tomorrow's performances.
