These are the qualities that stand by you, as you grind your way to the top. It won't be easy, but if you want it bad enough - It will happen!
This year, the Brisbane Eisteddfods - Dance Solos were slotted in for April, but given the occurence of the 2018 Commonwealth Games, many dancers who would normally have participated, were unable to, given they were heavily involved in the Games.
