Students from the Osoyoos-based Dance Oasis Showgroup were busy last week rehearsing and filming an audition tape for Dance the Magic Disney at the Frank Venables Theatre.
“This is a program for dance students to get the opportunity to perform their production dance number in the Disney Showcase on the Disney Stage in Disneyland,” said Chrissy Serry, Dance Oasis Artistic Director.
If they are accepted, they will be heading to California on Nov. 13.
The students have been working hard on their skills and choreography to be accepted to into the program.
They are also raising money for the trip. A burger and beer fundraiser is planned for Saturday, Sept. 29 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Sage Pub. There will be a massive silent auction, games and entertainment including the girls performing their routine, said Serry.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at the Sage Pub and Dance Oasis Studios.
The students also have the opportunity to learn the choreography and perform in the Christmas Holiday Spectacular Parade as the South Okanagan ambassadors for this area.
