Workshop Overview

Performers find out what it takes to be an integral member of a cohesive dance cast as they learn techniques to help maximize their rehearsal time and deliver a focused performance. Your Disney teaching artist will begin with a warm-up and your group will learn choreography for a simulated Walt Disney World Resort show audition. Next, your group will learn how the magic is created as they run through a rehearsal of a real Walt Disney World Resort show. The 2 1/2-hour workshop culminates in a finale performance incorporating all of the elements they have learned.

Your Disney teaching artist will also share industry insights to give dancers a competitive edge as they:

  • Rehearse routines from several Walt Disney World Resort shows to explore different choreography styles
  • Examine professional dance from the perspectives of a show director, producer and choreographer
  • Learn how to choose the proper attire for an audition and how to stand out from the crowd
  • Discover tips for creating an effective resume and getting the best possible pictures
  • Find out how versatility and the right attitude can open doors to new opportunities

Choreography may be adjusted to your group's ability level to ensure final performance success. Students should wear clothing and shoes that are appropriate for a dance rehearsal. Please do not arrive in sandals or bare feet.
