MARYBOROUGH Dance Eisteddfod has been an essential part of growing up for dancers like Hervey Bay's Jenna Wright.

The 16-year-old from Pamela Marshall Academy of Dance competed in her eighth eisteddfod this year.   

The Xavier Catholic College student closed out the six-day event with a Cuban-inspired group performance in the 15 years and over Novelty or Cabaret section.   

"It never loses its fun even after all these years," she said.   

"My group has had girls compete in all different sections including hip hop, ballet, jazz, tap and contemporary. 

"The best part is always performing in front of the crowd, our mums are out there watching."
