DISNEY EVENT 1

SIX OF OUR STUDENTS TAKE PART IN A DISNEY PROMOTION DAY INFRONT OF COUNTLESS MEDIA AND PRESS, FOR DISNEY CHANNEL�S BRAND NEW MOVIE "THE CHEETAH GIRLS ONE WORLD"

Six children from The Pop School and Stage Academy were invited to take part in a special workshop for media to celebrate the launch of Disney Channel�s brand new movie The Cheetah Girls One World, which premieres on the channel on 30th January at 6pm. Disney Channel has teamed up with Europe�s leading Bollywood school, Actor Prepares UK & Europe, and for the first time ever, the school will open its doors to kids.

The UK has the largest audience for Indian cinema outside India, with Bollywood films routinely entering the British top 10.* Disney Channel�s The Cheetah Girls One World was filmed in Mumbai � the home of the Bollywood film industry and celebrates cultural diversity, friendship, and the pursuit of goals and dreams. This was a great opportunity for the pupils of the Pop School and Stage Academy to get involved, learn about other cultures, whilst developing a new skill by tapping into the passion for Bollywood dance.

The Cheetah Girls One World workshop gave the children the opportunity to learn key Bollywood dance moves and a special routine inspired by the movie. Rakhi Sood, the school�s renowned Bollywood choreographer, hosted the workshop at the Ealing Institute of Media. This is what one the children said of their experience.

"I really enjoyed the workshop with Disney Channel for The Cheetah Girls One World. It was energizing and exciting as we were being filmed. I loved every moment of it!" said James Pavey, aged 11 from PSSA.

Mia and Laura Bird, the principals of the Pop School and Stage Academy, PSSA, are thrilled that their students have had this wonderful opportunity. Since staging High School Musical with the children in 2007, the school have built a relationship with Disney Channel, who filmed their audition process for ITV�s London Tonight and came to watch the children�s production, then invited the children from the school who were playing the lead roles to meet their American film cast counterparts i..e. Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens!! EVERY CHILD�S DREAM!!

DISNEY EVENT 2

When PSSA were staging their version of Disneys High School Musical Disney invited the children from PSSA to meet the American stars of High School Musical as they were over in the UK promoting the release of High School Musical 2. The lucky children who played the parts of Gabriella, Troy, Chad and Taylor, were taken in to the upstairs of the Disney store and got to meet their Idols from the American cast. They spent half an hour with them chatting and asking them questions. They had interviews together for the Disney channel and photos taken by certain media. The whole experience was incredible for the children of The pop school and stage Academy, when they got back in the car afterwards they said "can we scream now!!" and all screamed and hugged each other.

They where then given VIP tickets to watch the premiere of High School Musical 2 at the O2 arena in East London on Sunday afternoon Sept 2nd 2008 and attended the showbiz party afterwards. An experience they wont forget easily.
