Locals are dancing their way through the COVID-19 pandemic

Dance students at Christine Wishart Dance Studio have been keeping busy during the pandemic despite a change in their routine for the year.

Despite the shut down and COVID-19 restrictions the dancers have been practicing hard and even a few competing in a different format.

"The students have been doing a few on line Eisteddfods," owner and instructor Christine Wishart said.

"The students actually were lucky enough to dance at Bathurst and Orange Eisteddfods at the end of August/September with amazing results."

Sarah McDonald took out the 14 and Under Tap Championship at both Orange and Bathurst Eisteddfod which is a huge achievement. Pippa Findlay won the 8 and Under Aggregate at Bathurst and Ruby Holt won the 10 and Under Aggregate at Bathurst.

"A fantastic achievement," Christine said.

The studio have also just finished its tap exams which were held on Sunday.

Two students are also competing in another eisteddfod at Bathurst in October.

"We are also gearing up for our concert which will be held at the end of November as usual," Christine said.

"This year because of COVID we are holding our concert but with NO audience due to the number of people we can have in the Town Hall and abiding by COVID rules and regulations.

"The main thing is that our students get to perform on stage."

The concert will be videoed as usual and the students will be able to watch the DVD with their family and friends at home.
