We recently returned from a 6 day tour to Disneyland Resort, in Southern California. The Young Canadians had daily involvement in workshops and training with the professionals with Disney Performing Arts. The pros pushed everyone to new heights in our development as singers, dancers and performers.
Working with industry leaders in acting, puppetry, dance, vocal, musical theatre, auditions and careers, we moved to a new level of appreciation for the arts, and used that in our performances as well. With our presentation of ‘Maple Leaf Forever’, we have a completely live production on stage with all of the energy, excitement and production values of the Calgary Stampede to the Disneyland Resort.
Being adopted as cast members at Disney, The Young Canadians represented the Calgary Stampede, the City of Calgary and our great country of Canada with pride. We are celebrating our 45th year in 2013 and the caliber of students training and performing with the group is excellent.’
In a tip of the hat to the program, Thomas Schulteis, Disney Performing Arts stated ‘know that you all inspired many of us here at the Disneyland Resort.’
