Sydney Eisteddfod congratulates Pymble Ladies' College - Book of One on a magnificent performance and well-deserved win in the 2017 Secondary School Dance Group Final. The routine showcased some of Australia’s finest young dancers and definitely provided a vibrant break from the graceful performances of the Sydney Eisteddfod Ballet Scholarship.
Pymble Ladies' College - Book of One not only walked away with the title of champion, they also received a $1,000 prize. The routine was said to be a tribal narrative and was choreographed by Mitchell Delle-Virgin to original music.
But this was not the only prize won by the college, in second place was Pymble Ladies’ College - Talk like that, which was also choreographed by Mitchell Delle-Virgin to original music. They were awarded a $500 cash prize for their performance.
Third prize was awarded to Northern Beaches Secondary College Mackellar Girls Campus (Manly Vale) with their routine called Sweet Dreams. Choreographed by Ashley Mellowes & Cassi Anthony, this item was inspired by powerful women in a male dominated business world.
Adjudicators Olivia Ansell and Rebecca Dwyer explained how every group that stepped onto the Sydney Opera House stage was phenomenal and the hard work put into the routines by the students and teachers was undeniable.
