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

In 2017 the Sydney Eisteddfod will once again attract artists from around Australia to gather and share their talent. For the many dance students who train around our nation this is an opportunity to show the fruits of their hard work spent with their teachers discovering and refining their individual ability.

It is always a celebration of the wonderful passion and commitment these young people have for their art form. While there are prizes and scholarships on offer, it is the involvement in this wonderful Eisteddfod that is the true prize. The incentive to continue to hone their skills and dream big for the future.

We are a nation that produces world class dancers and the Sydney Eisteddfod is a great springboard for the new generation of young dancers to showcase themselves and point towards Australia’s exciting ‘dancing’ future.
