DANCERS TO DELIGHT CROWDS

SOME amazing talent has graced the stage at the 70th annual Ipswich Junior Eisteddfod over the past two months.

Organisers are now encouraging people to get in quick and be part of the audience before the event wraps up on Saturday.

Ipswich Junior Eisteddfod dance convener Lynlee McCormac said it was a shame to see days where seats were empty when such top talent was on show.

"We want people to come and support the performers, especially during the school holidays," she said.

"So far entrants have been of a very high standard. It's been excellent."

Mrs McCormac said eisteddfod performers often became professional dancers.

"Ipswich Eisteddfod stands up to others. It'll rival Brisbane this year," she said.

"The venue is really professional and it's great for the kids to perform on a big stage.

"People can come to any performance.

"This week we will have a lot of different styles like cabaret, novelty, acrobatic, song and dance, classical, tap and jazz.

"There's something for everyone."

Sessions will be held all week at the Ipswich Civic Centre, with the last group performing from 1pm on Saturday.

Tickets cost $7 per session for adults, $3 for children and full-day entry costs $15 for adults and $7 for children - and are available at the door.
