Dance eisteddfods are a rewarding and exciting experience. At Southern Star we are happy to be able to offer this opportunity to the devoted dancer.
It is important to note that being a part of the eisteddfod team is optional and reserved for the committed student and family only. Whilst the ability to be a part of the team is open to all of our students, this is an extra commitment and does involve extra training, travel and expense.
If you are interested in this experience please contact Mrs Danielle Small for more information and requirements.
