One giant leap for Taylah

By Kirra Livingstone

Talented Beerwah dancer Taylah Gela has been crowned age champion for 13 year olds at the 2022 Sunshine Coast Dance Eisteddfod.

Beerwah Masterpiece Dance owner Sarah Kwarcianyi could not speak more highly of Taylah’s efforts saying she is an exceptional and committed student.

“She placed first in three of her routines, first in lyrical, first in jazz, first in acrobatics, and she got a highly committed for contemporary, and that made her the overall age champion for 13 years age group.”

Most students perform about three to four solo eisteddfods a year but Taylah will probably end the year having performed in seven.

“This year she has performed four solos, she does an acrobatics solo, jazz, lyrical and contemporary, and she’s performed at three eisteddfods this year,” she said.

“Taylah has already done three this year and will probably do another three or four before the end of the year.”

The studio had a very successful eisteddfod, with Masterpiece student Grace coming second in contemporary and third in hip hop, while Joakim came third in acrobatics.
