Message from David McAllister AM, Artistic Director of The Australian Ballet

The journey of an artist's career is made up of many steps. Some of these are down in the solitude of a rehearsal room, some are boldly taken on stage.

For over eight decades the Sydney Eisteddfod has been giving young artists from across all the performing arts disciplines the opportunity to step out onto the public stage and perform. These performances have enabled so many to go on to build careers of great acclaim in companies around Australia and also to have success on the world stage.

In dance, the list of alumni of the Sydney Eisteddfod is stellar and I am sure this year we will see the next wave of talent emerge, and build the next generation of Australian dancers.
