Dance Magics Competition
It wouldn’t be a true Disney event without the opportunity for dancers to embrace the world of Disney’s music, theatre and films, in a magical themed challenge! Choose your favourite song or theme, design your costumes and get ready to wow the Disney judges!

Join with your dance partner and recreate one of those magical Disney combinations of Prince and Princesses, or the likes of Timone and Pumba, Peter Pan and Wendy... the opportunities are endless! The dance floor is yours take the chance to sparkle.

Each school can have unlimited entries. However, a dancer cannot compete against themselves in any category (for example a school may enter several different group entries into one age category, but no dancer can feature in more than one group per age category).
