Results from 2009

It was a fabulous event, with many new dance schools represented in both the troupe sections and the solo sections.

Thankyou to our lovely adjudicator - Amanda Pickstone, who provided very positive and encouraging reports for the entire event.

Most of all, thankyou to all of the wonderful people who participated in Stage Fever this year, you made the event run very smoothly and in such a friendly manner. We look forward to seeing each and every one of you again next year. Parents - you should be very proud of these fine young people and the spirit in which they competed.

It is so nice to receive such great feedback from entrants: Hi, We attended your eisteddfod last week for troupes and solos and I just wanted to say thank you for a well run, friendly and encouraging eisteddfod everyone involved were all happy and friendly, the eisteddfod was very punctual and I loved that all my daughter's dances were all on the one day and they were quite close together so we didn't have to sit around and wait! We were very impressed and look forward to entering again next year.

eDance provided a very smooth service with very easy to use reports and files which made the job of programming the event much quicker than in past years !
