A Great Notley dance troupe has been busy rehearsing for a special performance at Disneyland Paris this month.
The group is part of Rascals Theatre School, based in Braintree, and won the chance to perform at the top holiday destination, with 26 pupils heading there next week.
The troupe – aged between six and 16 - will perform a showcase of dances to five songs, including Pink Floyd’s Another Brick Wall, Baggy Trousers by Madness, and, rather aptly, Hey Mickey by Toni Basil.
To be accepted, the group had to submit two performances to The Disney Performing Arts Programme, who then judged the entries.
Diane Neave, director, said the troupe had been rehearsing for nine months, and that the youngsters are excited to be visiting the resort.
She said: “We’ve been rehearsing and the group has put in so much hard work. We know they will be brilliant as they are very well rehearsed, and we are sure they will all love the experience.
“We are so proud of them all.”
