Six-year-old Mitchell knows all about being cool
HE'S super cool, a keen dancer and a blossoming golfer - Mitchell Stewart has it all going for him.
Mitchell, a grade one student at Clinton Primary School, will compete in his third eisteddfod in August, a pretty amazing feat considering he is only six.
He will be performing in the tap, ballet and jazz categories of the Eisteddfod, and he's pumped.
"It's pretty fun on stage. It's so awesome," he said.
His favourite part of the Eisteddfod is "doing the split jump", but he never gets nervous.
With his bright red hair and impressive dance moves, Mitchell is a sight to see on stage.
After seeing his older sister dance for years, he wanted to do the same. But when he grows up, Mitchell wants a career in another field.
"I want to be a worker building houses," he said.
Mitchell did well at his second Gladstone Dance Festival recently, taking out second place for the tiny tots solo, an encouragement award for the eight years and under tap performance, and a highly commended for a tap solo.
Dancing is only one of this boy's talents.
He is also a golfer. Mitchell's mother says although he only started this year, he's got it down pat already.
"He's quite flukey - the first time he did it he hit the ball 60 metres. He's very active," she said.
Mitchell will join many other children in the 2014 Gladstone City Eisteddfod, which runs from August 31-September 26.
