Look Around Lubbock: The Dance Gallery travels to Disneyland to perform
The Dance Gallery School of Dance Arts will travel to California with sixty-two dancers to perform in the Dance the Magic Elite Holiday Spectacular in Disneyland.
The traveling team consists of dancers, ranging from 4th grade to 11th grade. This is the fourth year The Dance Gallery has traveled to perform with Dance the Magic. These dancers will perform a thirty-five-minute parade routine down Main Street for all guests in the Disneyland park on Saturday, November 23rd.
In addition to performing a parade routine throughout the park at Disneyland, these dancers will also be featured in the “Greatest Time of Year” showcase piece on the Fantasyland Theater Stage in the Dance the Magic Showcase. This routine was choreographed by Linda Love Simmons from the Entertainment team at the Disneyland Resort. Linda has worked with the Walt Disney Company for over 30 years and has been a dancer, choreographer and Show Director.
In addition to this showcase piece, the dancers will also perform two studio routines; a Tap routine choreographed by The Dance Gallery Studio owner, Karla McNeill, and a Jazz routine by choreographer Jenae Griffith. The Dance Gallery dancers have been rehearsing these two pieces since August and had to pass several audition processes to be eligible to participate in all four of their routines.
The Dance Gallery Dancers and their families will leave for California on November 21st and return after their parade performance and showcase pieces on November 25th.
