After 12 months of preparations, the time has arrived for 25 local dancers and 42 of their family and friends to make their way to America for 10 days. For some, this will not only be their first trip overseas, but their first time on an aeroplane.
Kristen’s Dance School owner Kristen Woods offered the opportunity late last year to students who perform at Eisteddfods throughout the year and she has since been working hard with students, choreographing and rehearsing dances to perform at Disneyland and Universal Studios. The dancers have a busy schedule to follow with workshops and performances at Disneyland, Universal Studios and Hollywood. They will also go on a guided sightseeing tour of
LA, visiting Beverley Hills, Hollywood and Rodeo Drive.
Students and their families conducted several fundraising activities throughout the year to assist the dancers with the costs, receiving an overwhelming response. The tour is offered by Dance Around the World Tours, an established company with over 25 years experience in giving Choir, Dance and Band groups performance opportunities
and workshop experiences in the USA, Asia, Europe and the South Pacific.
Good luck and happy travels to all our aspiring dancers and their families. Enjoy your trip and we look forward to hearing about your accomplishments on your return!
