Willow Scott says she was so little when she started dancing she can't even remember it.
The nine-year-old is one of the many dancers in the Dubbo Eisteddfod.
Including the group dances, Willow is performing 16 routines in front of adjudicator Janessa Dufty.
Thankfully, the young performer says she finds dancing "really fun".
Her favourite style is modern because "it's really emotional and you get to show lots of feeling". It's no wonder then that of the 16 dances she'll be doing at the eisteddfod, her modern solo is the one she was most looking forward to doing.
