Dreams come true
A CREW from Julie Ross Dance studio will perform with dancers from all around the world in a spectacular parade at Disneyland.
The 28 students have been accepted by audition to take part in Disneyland's Summer Dance the Magic Parade and will learn a complex routine to perform through Disneyland's Main St in July next year.
If that isn't exciting enough, they will also perform jazz, tap, classical and music theatre routines in other shows at Disneyland, Universal Studios and on Hollywood Boulevard.
Of course, their trip comes with a considerable price tag and they are calling on the community and business sponsors for support.
Dance teacher Sally Johnson said they are in the process of fundraising to purchase uniforms and costumes and to cover the cost of participating in dance and performing arts classes while abroad.
They need to raise $15,000 to cover costs.
"We have been given the opportunity to participate in the Jetty Markets' Sunday wall art competition where we will be painting a mural on October 23 which could possibly win us $1500," Ms Johnson said.
"While this is a fantastic opportunity, we are also open to any opportunities to perform for local businesses and to create sponsorship deals within the local community.
"So far Subway Coffs Harbour has come on board and has provided sponsorship for us and we have been lucky enough to land the jobs of chief barbecuers at Harvey Norman and for the kids' buskers festival at the racecourse, however, we need to raise a lot more money between now and then."
