On Saturdays for 5 weeks the Ryde Secondary College has been the home of ballet dancers, tap dancers, school groups, dance school groups taking part in the 2019 City of Ryde Eisteddfod. Many appreciative parents, teachers and friends in the audience have enjoyed the performances - but so too the adjudicators who had to decide winners and placegetters in a very competitive field.
The final day - September 7th, was scholarship day - and big prizes were handed out, generous sponsor for this event being the Ryde Eastwood Leagues Club.
At the Senior Ballet Scholarship the adjudicator Ms Virginia Ferris was very impressed by the high standard of all the dancers. Congratulations to all our entrants and pictured are our Winner Lauren Young from Mosman Dance and Rachel Ainsworth from Sydney College of Dance plus our very talented finalists.
In the Junior Scholarships adjudication was by Ms Melissa Aurisch - ballet teacher and former performer with West Australian ballet. She is shown with Estelle Crompton-Lamb (left) and Runner up Giselle Kotlyar. Both dancers are from The Dance Spot.
