The ultimate performer experience! Here’s your chance to take part in a show at the Happiest Place on Earth – Disneyland!
Spend the year working with expert Mandy Tulloch, focusing on movement, presence, confidence, and everything you need to be show ready for your performance at the Disney Park.
We will also cover simple dance steps, performance movement technique, alignment, breathing and Disney performance skills. All routines, steps and techniques taught will incorporate the high standards that Disney expects of its cast members.
There is NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY. the performers do not need to have dance or performance experience to enjoy this class or to come to Disneyland
This is a fun class with lots of hard work and the end result is always amazing, plus who doesn’t love Disney!
About the Disney Trip:
- Travel to Disneyland California, July 6th to 9th, 2023, to perform in a showcase as well as the Main Street parade.
- Disney provides the costumes and the cost is included in your class fees. Shoes are NOT included and range between $75-$100 USD
- There are 2 main hotels with packages that Disney provides. These packages include VIP experiences, park passes, hotel accomodation, professional photos and videos, Disney swag, and more.
- Families can travel to California how they wish, and stay with our group or on their own as long as they have communicated that ahead of the final confirmation date (April 2023) so we can arrange the proper park passes and clearances.
- Children under 12 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
- Children 12 and up can be accompanied by a Sitka/Tulloch Academy chaperone, of which we have a few volunteers, we will place 2 children with one chaperone and the guardian of these children will cover the cost of the chaperone.
If we want to check out the class can we do so before registering?
There is a $25 auditing fee that must be paid prior to day 1. If you'd like to come to the first class to try it out prior to registering you may do so however, Oct 29th is the only available day to do this. If you decide to register for the class it must be done on the same day.
Is this a dance class?
While the parade performance at Disney will be mostly dance movements, that is not all we teach in this class. Sitka is a performance school and we focus most of our instruction on the art of entertaining. While dance classes tend to focus on the precision of movement and everyone looking identical, we embrace the individuality of each performer and work to bring that out in a cohesive performance.
Are there programs to help with the cost?
Sitka Stage & Screen has a bursary program you can apply for that covers up to 50% of the cost of your class. Please contact us separately about this.
What happens if my child gets sick and can't come to class?
Life happens. While we do expect a certain level of commitment from our students we understand that families make plans and that other things can't be planned. We ask that you do your best to let us know what's going on as early as possible so we can make any necessary adjustments.
What is the cost of the Disney portion?
Disney has not released this years payment information, but we will update with what we know as soon as we receive it.
