The St George Dance Eisteddfod has begun, with talented competitors from across Sydney and Wollongong performing a high standard of dance in various styles.
Event sponsor, Nicole Fitzsimons Foundation, presented the Memorial Perpetual Trophy, 13-14 years, classical ballet at Hurstville Entertainment Centre, where more than 40 dancers were up for the award.
The foundation is named after Nicole Fitzsimons, who died in 2012 following a scooter accident in Thailand.
Her sister Kate established the foundation in her honour.
She says the competition is a wonderful legacy for Nicole, who was a former dancer.
The senior classical ballet scholarship award will be presented on May 18.
