Talent at the local eisteddfod

WHETHER it was dancing or singing, the Gladstone Eisteddfod had it covered.

Now over for another year, the level of talent was outstanding and the young performers right across the region dazzled spectators with their bright costumes, make-up, performances and attitude.

One very talented girl who lit up the stage is Kiara Medhurst who performed in the dance section in ballet, song and dance, jazz, tap and demi.

Dancing since she was three, Miss Medhurst practices every day to perfect her skills.

Placing first in most of her categories, she was pleased at how she performed this year.

“I placed first in tap, song and dance and ballet, second in demi and third in jazz,” Miss

Medhurst said.

Her talent is well alive at the age of seven and she hopes to continue dancing as a career when she is older.

She has said that the excitement of dancing was her favourite part of the eisteddfod and her parents and relatives came out to support her and were very proud of her efforts.

The Gladstone Eisteddfod will resume on October 22 for its annual showcase event.
