A group of young performers from Southwell achieved their dreams when they performed in the iconic pre-parade at Disneyland® Paris recently.
Last month, students from Stagecoach Performing Arts Southwell, made their way to Paris to perform in front of their families and thousands of international visitors, as part of the ‘Disney® Performing Arts OnStage’ programme.
Principal of Stagecoach Performing Arts Southwell, Michelle Sills says, ‘The students worked hard towards this performance and I was so proud to see them all on stage. For many of the students it was their first time performing in front of such a big audience and they were very excited. I am so impressed by their commitment and have seen their confidence grow with every rehearsal.’
Michelle adds, ‘Being on stage at Disneyland is a once in a lifetime experience and we certainly made life-long memories at Disneyland this summer.’
The students had been rehearsing for a number of months, following their success in auditions at the beginning of 2016. They joined 23 other Stagecoach schools from across the country in the performance.
