The students of Ruske Performing Arts in East Tamaki are undertaking the trip of a lifetime with 15 dancers heading to Disneyland and New York!
This team of dancers from seven to 17-years-old have spent the last eight months rehearsing tirelessly for this trip.
While in Los Angeles and Hollywood they have the opportunity to undertake workshops at some of the best studios in the city, as well perform at Disneyland, Citadel Shopping Centre and Universal Studios.
From there they are jumping on a plane and travelling over to New York where they get to take more workshops as well as take a tour of Amsterdam Theatre the second oldest operating theatre in New York–where they get to go backstage and try on costumes.
The students have worked tirelessly doing sausage sizzles, car washes, movie nights, a disco and quiz night to raise funds and now it’s time for them to take off to Disneyland.
