This week Ms Vicky and a team of 22 excited students, 4 StepUp teachers and a couple of our amazing, supportive parents will be on a plane to Paris!
Following on from a successful audition late last year, our team are thrilled to be able to offer a once in a lifetime experience for our students to dance onstage at Disneyland Paris – the first dance team from the UAE to be given this opportunity. Our team have been hard at work creating the 20 minute showcase which highlights and celebrates the cultural diversity of the StepUp family and the UAE. The 22 students performing have cultural roots from over 14 different countries!
The dancers have been put through their paces in an intensive rehearsal schedule over 9 weeks to get ready for the performance which will be held on one of Disneyland Paris’ main stages – seating an audience of up to 1300! Our students will also get the chance to take part in two exclusive workshops in dance and musical theatre with Disney’s professional performers.
Final preparations are underway with costume fittings, rehearsals and squeezing in time for a few newspaper and radio interviews too – our girls have been featured in Gulf News, Dubai Week, The National, Connector and heard on Pearl FM!
We can’t wait to see our beautiful girls shine on stage and all their hard work pay off – The countdown is officially on!
