THE annual Ararat Eisteddfod has seen another fantastic year, with high numbers of entrants and outstanding performances.
The event is being held at the Ararat Town Hall and commenced Friday September 21, and will conclude on Sunday September 29 inclusive.
Each day is structured into three sessions - morning, afternoon, and evening, with entry to a session set at $10.
Eisteddfod secretary Chris Harris said troupe day on Friday will be huge for the event.
"We're expecting 100 (troupes) to appear from 18 schools from around regional Victoria from 9am till about 10pm," she said.
"We've had bigger audiences this year so far.
"We've had solos, duos and trio sections."
The senior ballet championship first place went to Charlotte Chivers of Canadian.
There was an additional highlight for performers this year too, Ms Harris said.
"I contacted the Australian ballet school to see if they would donate a scholarship for their summer school, so Scarlett Nash from Ballarat got that," she said.
