After seven months of rehearsing, Rascals Theatre School dancers performed for 20 minutes at the tourist hotspot, delighting audiences with their eye-catching routine.

The group – which has classes in places including Priors Green, Halstead and Great Notley - won the chance to perform there and had to submit two performances to The Disney Performing Arts Programme.

Drawing large crowds, the troupe – aged between six and 16 – danced to the likes of Pink Floyd, Madness and Toni Basil.

Diane and Dan Neave, directors at the school, said: “It was such an amazing experience for all of the children and their parents.

“We were so proud of each and every member of our troupe. They really did rise to the occasion and we are hoping to perform the show once again in late September at Braintree Arts Theatre so that family and friends who were not at Disney can see the show too.”
