Disney Dance the Dream!
We have just returned from our fantastic event in Disneyland Paris where 1500 parents and students enjoyed the magic of Disney and got the opportunity to perform in this iconic and enchanting setting.
We arrived on the Thursday 21st July full of excitement and anticipation of the weekends events and received a wonder welcome evening from the stars themselves. Our students got the chance to meet their favourite characters and of course get their picture with them.
After rehearsing for the Pre-Parade on the Friday, 528 students danced the Pre-Parade in a sea of orange T-shirts that really made an impact as they sang and marched passionately down Main Street! Our other 528 students took part in a vocal workshop lead by a Disney Performing Arts cast member and performed in front of the castle (see picture below).
14 schools, including Sutton, Hastings, Maidenhead, Epsom, Wimbledon, Medway, Liphook, Beverly took to the Cinemagique stage over the two days
‘Do you want to sing a workshop’! The Saturday gave a once in a lifetime opportunity for students to take part in a Disney Frozen singing workshop to sing all of their favourite tunes from the smash hit movie and once they all had their Elsa & Ana songs rehearsed, the students went on to perform 2 Frozen tracks in front of the castle. It may not have been an ice castle but what a magical moment! Some schools then went onto stage performances. The schools who performed on stage were Newport & Chepstow, Salford & Didsbury, Stanmore and Harrow Weald, Sheffield, Henley /High Wycombe and Marlow and Lakes Choir.
Finally after a jam packed weekend, we got the chance to enjoy the incredible firework display lighting up the park. A rather fitting celebration to a fantastic weekend.
A fantastic Stagecoach Disney time was had by all!
