The Centralian Eisteddfod offers over 150 competition categories in which over 1000 Central Australian young people and adults will participate, giving them “a chance to perform in front of an audience and receive feedback from professional adjudicators,” says president Allison Hull.
In its 33rd year the Eisteddfod will have contests including news reading, mime, all abilities dance, rock groups, composing music and nursery rhyme recitals.
“Schools are a big supporter of the Eisteddfod participating with choirs and dance groups as well as supporting individual students in speech and drama presentations,” says Ms Hull.
“It is a nurturing place to start their performing arts journey.”
Alice Springs dancer, Luke Hayward, many time winner of the Centralian Eisteddfod’s Andrea Wigg Trophy for Most Promising Male Performer, now dances professionally with the Sydney Dance Company.
