BRAVE dance moves and costumes were yesterday part of the Launceston Competitions as they leapt into dramatic neoclassical and contemporary action.
Kicking, lunging and flailing were part of the energetic display, held at Launceston's Princess Theatre.
A swathe of colours and bold poses brought applause from audiences as efforts were scrutinised by the competition's watchful adjudicators.
Competition will continue today and includes a national solo section - other than English, Irish or Scottish - for entrants aged from 13 and under 15.
Speed tap solos, song and soft shoe dance solo, jazz group and restricted tap sections will also be a part of today's dance-offs.
The Launceston Competitions' dance section began on Friday and will run through until Saturday.
