A TEAM of West Fife dancers are set to jet off to Paris for the performance of a lifetime at Disneyland.

Dunfermline and Inverkeithing students of the Act Sing Dance School will not only be competing at the International Festival of Dance and Performing Arts Competition at Disney, they'll also have the honour of performing onstage in the park and in the iconic parade.

Zôe McRae, one of the dance teachers who is joining the kids on the trip, told the Press: "We're so proud of them! A lot of the students have been with us since they were little and that's what's incredible about it.

"Two of our students that are coming with us have just both been accepted to performing arts colleges and this is their last hurrah before leaving us so it's very emotional!"

The team is flying out for four fun-filled days on October 6 and they can't wait to get out there and give the best performance they can.

She continued: "There's going to be schools from all over the world there, I know there's often students from places like Dubai, France and lots of other places that come along to compete. It will be a really awesome experience for these 15 kids from Fife."

Making up the West Fife team are advanced students Sean Michael, Hollie Wilson, Calum Coutts, Adam Gallagher, Libby Short, James Martin, Alexander Martin, Louis McNorton, Grace Gow, Jamie Farmer, Ross Monaghan, Siobhan Chapman, Lucy Davie, Aurora Ledraw-Carrick and Hannah Martin.

"They're competing in eight different numbers and performing eight of their own numbers in the show! There was only six slots available to perform over that weekend and our kids auditioned and got a place in that!" she said.

"I think that's really cool and they're excited!"

The group is also performing in the Disney parade and had to video their audition to send off.

Zôe laughed: "Hilariously, we don't have a big enough space to do the whole parade track in the studio we use in Inverkeithing but in Ballast Bank, there's the old running track so we had to go outside and do the parade for the audition around Ballast Bank which was an experience in itself for them!"

For six hours a week since March, the squad have been practising and perfecting their routines so they can really go for gold in the competition and blow the crowd away at their Disney performances.

She added: "At the end of the day, we want them to go and do the best that they can. They've put a lot of effort in and we've put effort in to making them best that they can be. It's a fun environment but they're learning so much in these six hours, it's unreal!"

It won't be all work and no play for the kids as they'll get time to enjoy the park each day, rewarding them for all their hard work.

Zôe said: "They're buzzing about it, as they should be!"
