ELEVEN years ago Jarrad Cramp took to the stage for the first time at the Lismore Eisteddfod and now life has come full circle for the professional dancer.

At this year's 100th Eisteddfod the Lismore-based dance teacher will have students competing in all age divisions from eight-year-olds to adults.

Now running two dance schools of his own, the 21-year-old said it felt strange to watch his students grace the stage.

"It's surreal sometimes now when I go to the eisteddfods I'm the teacher sitting watching my students doing the dances its not me doing the dance," he said.

"But the feelings great, there's nothing better."

His students are rehearsing for the eisteddfod which runs from September 3-21.
