Stephen F. Austin High School performs at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida
The talented students of Stephen F. Austin High School became stars of their own Disney show on March 7 and 8 when they entertained guests at Downtown Disney and Magic Kingdom Park at the Walt Disney World Resort. They traveled to take part in the Disney Performing Arts Program.
On March 7, the “Angels” Dance Team got the chance to welcome guests to Downtown Disney with a performance at the Waterside Stage. Led by director Lilian Mason and Ashlee Williamson, the members of the dance ensemble entertained guests with several numbers including Lady Gaga’s “Applause.” This was the second performance for the dance team, having previously performed in 1998.
The Stephen F. Austin High School “Bulldog” Marching Band performers, under the direction of Bob Chreste and Mike Roche, put on a fantastic show for resort guests the morning of March 8. Students met at Magic Kingdom Park, where they got an inside look at what it is like to be a professional in the entertainment industry with a march down Main Street U.S.A. This was the marching band’s first visit to the resort with the Disney Performing Arts Program.
Vocal, instrumental and dance ensembles from around the world apply to perform each year as a part of Disney Performing Arts at both the Disneyland Resort and the Walt Disney World Resort. Once selected, they are given the opportunity to perform at the resort for an international audience of theme park guests. Millions of performers have graced the stages of the Disney Parks in the more than 25-year history of the program.
