Our Disney Dancers had a great time as they traveled to Disney World in Orlando, Florida on November 30 for the taping of the Disney Christmas Day Parade! Fifteen Elite Dancers performed in three different dances that will be aired on ABC TV Christmas morning on the Disney Christmas Day parade. The older dancers learned actual choreography from the Broadway hit musical, NEWSIE’S and rehearsed with the choreographer from the show as well as some cast members. Our younger dancers will be featured in the BRAVE section of the parade dancing right behind Merida. Also, we had 2 of our dancers, Miss Jazmyn Jenkins and Miss Kaitlyn Cobat chosen out of 300 other dancers to be featured as one of 20 dancers for the special maypole section of the Brave dance. We are so proud of all our dancers as they did a great job representing Elite!
