THE Biloela Dance Eisteddfod is on again this weekend at the Biloela Civic Centre.
Dancers from all over the region will compete in the eisteddfod, which kicks off at 9am on Friday.
Biloela dance teacher Sharon Gallagher is no stranger to having students compete in the eisteddfod with more than 33 years experience.
"We have been preparing for this eisteddfod since last eisteddfod," Sharon said.
"It is always constant preparation.
"It is very stressful.
"It can be very difficult with so much happening in town to get people to all the practices but at the moment we are hoping not too many get sick this week and are out for the weekend."
Sharon said her dancers were constantly working towards the eisteddfod.
"We travel to different eisteddfods throughout the year as part of our preparation; we travelled to Bundaberg in April this year.
"It really gives students the opportunity to showcase their abilities and compete against other students around the district."
This year Sharon will have more than 60 students participating in the two days.
"A big thank-you must go to the eisteddfod committee for their continued support of local talent," she said.
"Without them it wouldn't happen."
The 47th annual Biloela Dance Eisteddfod will kick off today at 9am with solo, duo and trio events while Saturday will see groups take to the stage.
