At the end of last month I was invited to attend an exciting day out with the Disney on Ice skaters and Peter Andre for a fun filled morning of dancing and story telling. Unfortunately we already had plans so Emmy and I couldn’t make it. This event was to celebrate the launch of the search for the UK’s fit to dance champion.
We would have loved to have attended as last year, Emmy, my niece and I had a blast learning to stake with the Disney on Ice skaters at the Tower of London.
Fit to Dance is a great way to encourage children and their families to stay active and get creative through storytelling. Families can use Disney On Ice’s super fan Peter Andre’s step-by-step video guide to help create their own Fit to Dance session in the comfort of their own home. This video tutorial features Peter and his son Junior performing a choreographed routine which is inspired by Disney On Ice presents Frozen, which comes to the UK next month.
The fun doesn’t end there though – if you join in and then upload your family masterpiece onto the Disney on Ice Facebook page
it will then be reviewed by Peter Andre and his panel who will select a winner based on who embodies the spirit of Fit to Dance to crown a Fit to Dance champion.
The winner of this competition will then not only be crowned the ultimate Fit to Dance Champion 2016, they will also win VIP tickets to Disney On Ice’s Spring 2017 tour along with some other very exclusive prizes.
Influenced by the wide range of Disney On Ice shows, featuring characters from the much loved films such as Disney’s Frozen, The Little Mermaid and Tangled, the Fit to Dance programme encourages children to create their own dance sequences in the comfort of their own home, in the garden or even in the school playground. The programme also reflects the creative process used in Disney On Ice shows, where stories are developed by a writing team and then choreographed into spectacular dance routines.
I’m so excited to launch the Fit to Dance Champion competition and get families across the UK dancing together and having some fun! It’s a great way to do something that’s creative and active with the kids, and it doesn’t cost a thing. Junior and I had a great time making our video and we can’t wait to see what other families come up with!
