The Abermain Eisteddfod recently celebrated its 100th Birthday this year, making it the longest running Eisteddfod in Australia.

Dance teacher Corynne Darcy told News Of The Area, “This is such a wonderful achievement for an Eisteddfod to be running this long.”

I personally love this eisteddfod held at Abermain Plaza Hall in Bathurst Street, as it was one that I competed in myself as a child, so it’s really lovely to now see my own students performing there.”

The event was held during the recent school holidays.

The Eisteddfod has sections for children aged 3 years up to ‘Allcomers’ (all ages) in all styles of dance (jazz, tap, classical ballet, national Character, contemporary, demi character song & dance), Singing, musical instruments, speech and drama.

This year, to celebrate the 100th birthday, they raised their prize money (thanks to generous sponsorship), encouraging even more competitors to take part.

Dance N Dazzle Studio from Medowie had several soloists entered and were awarded 14 First placings, 4 second placings and 5 ‘Highly Commended’.

Successful Students included:- Ebony Deguara, Olivia Lightfoot, Kyara Darcy, Scarlett Darcy and Jordyn Booth.

Each of these girls took out first placings.

Kyara Darcy was awarded the 12/U Jazz Championship winning a trophy and $100 cash for her efforts.

Scarlett Darcy (aged 9) was our most successful soloist taking out the 12/U Junior Singing Scholarship, winning a trophy and $500.00.

Both girls have deposited their money into their savings account to put towards something important in their future.

Corynne said, “They were both absolutely thrilled and it was certainly a lovely and exciting thing to happen to them after so much hard work.”
