Young dancers with Got 2 Dance Productions have been working hard in recent weeks in preparation for a trip to Disneyland to be part of a Disney parade.

Anne-Alisa Wiancko, co-owner of Got 2 Dance, said dancers have been working on their Disneyland routine for the last three weeks.

She said they received a special dance routine to practice for a parade that will happen at California Adventure Park.

“They get to dance with, I think there’s 750 kids around the world that are going to be there,” said Wiancko.

She registered the studio to be part of the parade and feels the dancers are quite excited to be part of the experience. “I think the nerves will maybe kick in a little bit down there but right now they’re pretty excited to be going.”

The crew has been practicing twice a week for two hours each time to get the routine down. Wiancko expects the parade to last approximately one hour. Her hope is to give the dancers a new experience and to meet other dancers from around the world.

“I think it’s our plan to continue with this. Maybe not every year, maybe every second or third year,” said Wiancko of their future plans with travelling to Disneyland.

There are two parades set for July 10 and 11 and Wiancko said the dancers will be part of both of them.

“The kids are working really hard. It’s a challenge to be working on a new routine so quickly,” explained Wiancko. “We’re really excited to go and it’s a wonderful opportunity for them.”
