For some children Dancing in the magical kingdom that is Disney World is a dream come true, and for a group of dancers in Winchester, that fantasy is about to come true.

From June 20-24, forty-five artists from Dancer’s Pointe Dance School, located next to Redwing Dr., will take part in a parade and stage performance when they travel to Orlando to experience a life.

“They’ve done quite a bit of work,” said Danielle Bridgewater, owner of Dancer’s Pointe. “We took five weeks to prepare for the trip, and my dancers were very focused, dedicated and hardworking.”

From intermediate to advanced rank, the group will represent one of many dance studios across the country.

The girls will be ready to participate in a series of dances.

When participating in the parade at the Magic Kingdom, a character-style dance will be featured.

During a 20-minute performance on stage at Epcot, a mix of ballet and contemporary genres choreographed in the Winchester studio will be presented.

In addition, a series of master classes will allow young people to continue developing their already well-honed skills.

“They’re bringing in a guest industry leader to teach a dance class and they’ll take that with other dancers [from] across the country,” Bridgewater said. “It’s a great learning experience and a growth experience for them.”

While the studio took part in performances at Disney World several years ago, this year’s expedition is a continuation to further develop young talent.

This is a goal that can be achieved in multiple ways.

“At Dancer’s Pointe, we are always looking for new opportunities for our students,” said Bridgewater. “I think when you go through a process that has a big reward at the end, it really makes you grow not just as a dancer and a performer, but as a human.”
