Whilst the Sydney Eisteddfod Ballet Scholarship finalists entertained audiences on Sunday 14 August with their finesse and stunning technique, the powerful and energetic troupes competing in the Open Jazz Dance Group Final were some of the strongest to ever perform on the Sydney Opera House stage!
Despite every group bringing their A-game and putting on a riveting show, National College of Dance stood out from the rest with their routine to Lean On by Major Lazer. In addition to the gratification of winning this highly competitive event, they also received a prize of $2,500 making their success even sweeter!
Adjudicators Olivia Ansell and Keith Hawley spoke very highly of the level of talent they saw on the stage, emphasising that “it’s great to see such innovative choreography with such diversity of styles.”
Sydney Eisteddfod would like to thank every dance school that competed for the effort and creativity that was put into each routine. It is the hard work of both the teachers and the performers that makes the Open Jazz Dance Group Final such a spectacular event.
