Most Innovations students dream of big and professional stages at some point, and they don’t come much bigger than Disneyland! This October, 23 of our seniors (aged 12-18) will be flying off to Paris to take part in ‘Time to Shine,’ a great learning experience for students from across Ireland and the UK. While there, they will explore a working Disney venue and take part in Performing Arts Workshops in Musical Theatre, Dance or Voice with industry professionals. They will also get the chance to perform in front of hundreds of their peers, getting feedback from a West End performer, a casting director, a drama school teacher and a talent agent.
What a great opportunity for learning, performance and adventure, as well as flying the flag for Ireland! We are thrilled for these teenagers to be able enhance what they are already learning in Innovations, to get the chance to travel together and to make lasting memories and friendships.
In order to make the three-night trip as accessible as possible for all our students, we are organising a series of fund-raising events. These will culminate in September with a special performance by the travelling students entitled Poetry and Motion. We also have corporate sponsorship packages available. If you can, please support one of these fun events or enquire how you can sponsor the project.
