Dance magic draws crowd
AUDIENCES at the Jetty Theatre could be forgiven for wondering if they’d slipped into a fairytale with the ballerinas, fairies and butterflies on stage.
Dancing to the strains of pianos and woodwind instruments, each of the young ladies in the encouragement solos wowed the audience.
The Busy Little Fairy, Jacqueline Samms, showed off her acting prowess and created a magical wonderland on the stage.
“Every year there is something new,” organiser Kate Parker said. “We are getting a lot more contemporary dancers.”
The dancers are taking to the stage for a week-long extravaganza at the Jetty Memorial Theatre for the 38th Annual Coffs Harbour and District Eisteddfod. The solos kicked off with novice classical ballet yesterday.
This week, more than 200 solo dance performers will allegro, balloon and pirouette to an expected packed house.
