Disney Performing Arts Workshops are Disney designed programs that teach performing arts students' concepts in music, dance, and theatre. These hands-on sessions will enrich the value of your group's visit by providing students with a feel for what it's like to be a professional performance artist - from the preparation and skill-development stages to rehearsing and performing. And it is done the Disney way, with a special touch of magic.
