Parade in a Disney® Park
A highlight of the weekend events, all performers aged 8 and over will be invited to apply to take part in the Disney Performing Arts® Pre-Parade before thousands of people along Main Street USA, in the Disneyland® Park.
So picture the scene…
the sun is just starting to set, the Disneyland park is twinkling and sparkling with the flicker of Christmas lights all around. Crowds of people from all around the world are lining the streets 10 deep in excited anticipation, Sleeping Beauty’s castle is shimmering in all its festive glory in the dusk light and a few flakes of magical Disney snow is still drifting through the air from the Christmas Tree lighting ceremony. Then in the distance you hear it…
The familiar sound of festive bagpipes from afar, smiles broaden across the faces of enchanted onlookers as the parade rounds the bend, a sea of tartan of every colour and pattern, dancing their way through the Disneyland Park proud and full of Disney sparkle, clapped and cheered along by family and friends (plus a lot of new friends enjoying the show).
This only touches on the pure joy of being part of the IGSHD Disney Pre-Parade, emotions will be on a high for both dancers and family and friends; your faces are going to ache from smiling and we can guarantee it will be the proudest moment of your dancing career! A real achievement, something extra special to round off a weekend of joyous competition and performances. Parents and guardians, teachers, friends and family members, prepare yourself, if there is one thing for certain, it's that your chests will swell with pride and your cheeks be covered in tears as you watch your dancers light up the Disneyland park.
The routine will be specially prepared by world famous choreographer and former Edinburgh Tattoo Choreographer Billy Forsyth MBE, bringing you all together for a magical experience. The Disney Performing Arts Pre-Parade routine will be provided to you in advance.
