Dancers perform at Disneyland

Early this November, the Summerland School of Dance’s Dance Team performed at the Disneyland Resort.

Early this November, the Summerland School of Dance’s Dance Team performed an All Canadian program on the Hollywood Back Lot Stage at the Disneyland Resort.

The team was accepted in the Disneyland Resort Youth program last year and the team had been preparing for this venture ever since.

The students participated in a DLR Youth dance workshop with Shelly Nichols who has been with Disney for more than 30 years.

She was an inspiration for the Summerland students.

It was a lot of work getting to Disney with the team raising funds to offset the costs of the trip, and many hours of rehearsing.

Eva Goss, director and owner of Summerland School of Dance said the dance team received generous support from the local merchants in Summerland and Penticton.

The dance school received many donations to help with the fundraising efforts.

The DLR receives thousands of applications to participate in this program, and the Dance Team was privileged to have been accepted.

The team not only represented Summerland School of Dance; they also represented Disney.

“The students, parents and teachers had such a wonderful time,” Goss said. “This is the first time that Summerland School of Dance has ever participated in this program, and we are all so proud to have represented our town of Summerland.”
