Eisteddfod Results: Dance

In the months of May and June the Cape Town  Ballet and Dance Eisteddfod have been taking place. A number of our girls have entered and have achieved some excellent results.

Kate Didcott danced in the finals of the Cape Town Ballet Eisteddfod on Saturday evening, 17 May. She was part of a group of 32 girls, ranging in age from 6 to 15, dancing with the Debbie Lindup School of Ballet. They danced a piece entitled ‘Diamonds’ to music by Tchaikovsky. They managed to win their section of the competition, which was a great achievement. They also received a diploma award for their dance.

Tasha Ainsworth won both her set dances and was awarded the Francis Harrison Bursary for the most promising dancer over the age of 13. This is really such an honour and so well deserved.
