Olmsted Performing Arts’ Disney Dance Company gives your young dancer the unique opportunity to perform at Disney World as well as take master classes with Disney World Cast Members while there — all under the supervision of our experienced and dedicated dance instructors. As part of our dance company, your child will make the leap from dancer to performer. The Disney Dance Company at OPA is a great introduction to performing for large crowds at an amazing venue — while still having loads of fun!

Placement Auditions

Placement Auditions for the Disney Dance Team will be held August 21, 2016 from 2:00–4:30 PM. All ages and skill levels are welcome. All dancers who want to travel with OPA will make the team; these auditions are simply to make sure dancers perform skill-appropriate numbers.

You will need to fill out an audition form when you audition for the Disney Dance Team. You may print it out and fill it in ahead of time; bring this form with you to your audition.


Megan Ferguson – Intermediate/Advanced Company (Mickey)

There are no additional requirements to participate in this company. You do not need to be involved in a current OPA dance class to be on this team, however we do strongly suggest you take a jazz or ballet class to help with technique while you’re on the team.

Informational Meeting

An informational meeting including details about the cost of the trip will be held on August 8, 2016 at 7:00 PM. The meeting is informational only; you do not need to commit to the team to attend.

Your payments can begin in September 2016 and will include your company class and costume.
