Local performers from TipToe brought some Thurrock magic to Disneyland Paris!
Popular Thurrock based TipToe Stage School spent the last week in Disneyland Paris where they performed to capacity crowds in Disneys’ Magic Kingdom.
Scores of pupils and parents made the journey from Ockendon to Paris after the school were invited to perform in the park by the Disney events team.
Julie Barker, Principal of TipToe told us: “This has been both a humbling and proud moment for me and my teaching team.”
She added “The performers danced impeccably and not only did they entertain and wow the crowds, but they represented the borough in the best way. Their determination to succeed and also put on such a great show was just inspiring.”
The mammoth operation saw the majority of the group traveling by Eurostar, and some driving through the night to get to the park.
The performers were selected after the show organisers saw the school’s Royal Albert Hall performance in which they wowed crowds.
