A dance academy raises funds to perform at Disneyland Paris.
The Dance Academy, based in Corby Glen, has been invited to perform at Disneyland Paris after successfully passing the audition.
From July 26 to 29, more than 50 members of the academy will be on the trip, including 24 dancers aged 5 to 16, accompanied by their teachers and parents.
Jane Brown, who runs The Dance Academy, said: “We sent a dance academy video dancing to Disney and we passed the audition.”
Feedback The Dance Academy received from the audition was that they “had a beautiful varied program, lots of energy with a fantastic stage presence. The dancers had great musicality, flexibility, coordination and technique, all of which will appeal to the Disney audience.”
Jane continued: “The trip costs £600 each and we aim to raise as much of the total amount as possible to reduce the load to help everyone get to Disney; especially over the last couple of years that’s one thing so fantastic for them.”
To raise funds, the Dance Academy is already planning a series of events including raffles and a cabaret night to take place in the new year.
Jane added, “We’re also looking to see if any companies are interested in sponsoring us to help bring kids to Disney.”
